iHEARTMEDIA Oldies WTRY (OLDIES 98-3)/ALBANY, NY joins the holiday festivities with the launch of its CHRISTMAS music programming, featuring holiday favorites around the clock through CHRISTMAS.
To get in the holiday spirit 98.3 TRY will play nothing but familiar holiday favorites. 98.3 TRY has been playing CHRISTMAS music programming throughout the holiday season since 2001.
“98.3 TRY playing holiday music has become an annual tradition for listeners in THE CAPITAL DISTRICT,” said SVP/Programming JOHN COOPER. “We love getting everyone in the holiday spirit!”
This just in: As WTRY flipped to CHRISTMAS music this morning, Oldies sister WROW (MAGIC 590) expanded to an FM frequency at 100.5 thanks to a new 250-watt translator in ALBANY.
“We’re excited to bring MAGIC back to the FM band,” PD JAY SCOTT said. “We truly offer listeners music they can’t find on their radio elsewhere in the Capital District. To now offer it both on 590 and 100.5 is a plus for our listeners, plus we’re excited to bring more people to the party!”
“ALBANY BROADCASTING has been committed to live and local radio for nearly 30 years and we felt adding an FM signal to WROW would introduce a great format of music to a new audience of potential listeners, as well as give our existing listeners the option of listening on both the AM and FM band,” GM BRYAN HOLLENBAUGH said.
