WGY/Albany Adds FM Simulcast Over WHRL
September 20, 2010 at 6:33 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WGY-A/ALBANY has added an FM simulcast, with Active Rock WHRL (CHANNEL 103.1) flipping to carry the programming of the heritage talker.
"810 WGY has one of the strongest signals in the country, powering our highly-rated News-Talk giant," said VP/Market Manager KRISTIN DELANEY. "We are expecting significant ratings growth by simulcasting on 103.1, which has changed its call letters from WHRL to WGY-FM."
"The decision to simulcast our 24-hour News/Talk format on the FM will open up our content to an even wider audience. Despite the huge audience we currently enjoy, the fact is a significant portion of the CAPITAL REGION audience never thinks to visit the AM dial," added DELANEY. "We know there are thousands of potential listeners who will be hungry for our stimulating talk shows, DON WEEKS, JOE GALLAGHER and our award-winning coverage of news and weather."
