WPAY/WPFB INC. Talk WPAY-A/PORTSMOUTH, OH has gone silent after almost 80 years of operation.
The PORTSMOUTH DAILY TIMES reports that the station, not included after sister WPAY-F was sold to NORTHERN KENTUCKY UNIVERSITY, was shut down by the BRADEN family at 2p (ET) FRIDAY, with President DOUG BRADEN saying that the AM side could not operate without a staff. "We have appreciated the support that the community has given us these many years. We are very grateful for all the support we have had. It's just not feasible to continue," BRADEN told the paper.
