ALL ACCESS told you first that the station that signed off the NEW YORK CITY airwaves on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30th, 2009, MEGA MEDIA GROUP Top 40/Dance WNYZ-LP (PULSE 87.7)/NEW YORK is back (NET NEWS 2/16).
Now we can confirm it's back with JOEL SALKOWITZ programming the online station. SALKOWITZ purchased the station’s automation system, music library and other assets at a bankruptcy auction, and PULSE 87.7 is not associated with the former parent company
"The outpouring of support from the audience has been nothing short of amazing," SALKOWITZ told ALL ACCESS. "I literally made four phones calls and sent eight text messages on MONDAY night and in less than 48 hours we’ve had over 20,000 pages views on the site! We’ve already been contacted by former clients who want to work with the station -- and some of the former salespeople are already on the case!"
"I’ve been contacted by the entire air staff, all my former mix show guys, local artists, lots of the people who worked in promotions and on the street teams," SALKOWITZ continued. "Everyone wants to come back and volunteer! That’s amazing. We hope to have people on the air within the next couple of weeks. With the fan base that was crying out for this format since the station went off the air, we expect to grow very quickly. The social networking elements are just remarkable. I don’t believe I’ve ever witnessed this kind of passion for a radio station!"
