St. Joseph Missions Begins Religious Airings In Pittsburgh
February 16, 2010 at 9:59 AM (PT)
ST. JOSEPH MISSIONS has aired a live mass celebration from a GREENSBURG, PA. DIOCESE and has looped a GREGORIAN chant on the former WAMO and WPGR-A in PITTSBURGH. The group, which purchased the stations last year from SHERIDAN BROADCASTING for $8.9 million, had taken the frequencies silent until now.
There was also an automated message that indicated they expect to begin live broadcasting MARCH 19th. They have changed call-letters to WAOB-FM (106.7) and WAOB-A (860).
PITTSBURGH is currently without an Urban station.
