WGHT To Return Under WTBQ Operators
After signing-off in December 2017 with the exception of brief broadcasts to keep its license alive following its donation to the Borough of Pompton Lakes, 1500 WGHT Pompton Lakes NJ will resume operations in April.
Frank Truatt, owner of 1110 WTBQ/93.5 W228CG Warwick NY, has agreed to an LMA with option to purchase WGHT and its CP for 98.3 W252ED Pompton Lakes. NorthJersey.com reports that Pompton Lakes approved the deal on Wednesday. WGHT will return mostly as a simulcast of WTBQ until reestablishing its own local programming that will follow the other station’s model of local talk, brokered shows, community affairs, high school sports, and filler music on nights and weekends.
