    WPTR 1240 AM , Schenectady along with its unbuilt translator W246DS  97.1  has been sold  by Empire Broadcasting Corp. to what appears to be a newly formed company, Area Independent Radio, Inc. This appears in the FCC Daily Digest (9/5/2019) in “Broadcast Applications”.  WPTR has been off the air and up for sale for more than a year now, coming on the air briefly to keep the license active. I am wondering if this new owner is some type of non-profit? This leaves only 900 AM as the only property Empire has not been able to sell.

    It will probably end up being another Jesus station….

    Apparently nobody even noticed Crawford sold 96.7 WDCD to Mars Hill Radio, not even me… doesn’t matter though, pretty much the same programming 😉

    I’ll go along with time traveler about the possibility of1240 being another religious broadcaster.

    1240 am WPTR is now on the air.  Playing some decent rock music from 60s and 70s.

    I’m an outside radio fan who has a lot of curiosity about what WPTR is now doing (and will do) under it’s new ownership.  As they are on the air now, how are they promoting the new station?  What liners are playing between songs?

    I’m not 100% sure about this. Is there an online streaming version of WPTR? I don’t see it yet, and there’s no mention of the station’s website at the moment. We’ll keep you posted as it happens.
