LONG ISLAND RADIO BROADCASTING flips Business News WHBE/EAST HAMPTON, NY to a simulcast of sister AAA WEHM/SOUTHAMPTON. Also, the 92.9 ‘EHM antenna was moved 14 miles to the west, to provide coverage to LONG ISLANDERS in central and western SUFFOLK COUNTY. The simulcast will run hourly updates of the BLOOMBERG BUSINESS NEWS formerly aired on WHBE.
"Our ultimate goal is to provide ‘EHM’s unique brand of progressive music from MONTAUK to MANHATTAN and the World," said LONG ISLAND RADIO President JOHN MACGUIRE. "Soon we will be announcing plans to stream the HAMPTONS hometown station over the Worldwide Web. The demand for WEHM has grown well past the bounds of the station’s listening area due to the international popularity of the HAMPTONS. It makes sense to provide access to these listeners as they travel outside the area. This is terrific news for both our listeners and our advertisers."
