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.
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?
