Not So WARM in Scranton

590 WARM Scranton Wilkes-Barre WILK WGBI

Update 4/23/09: WARM returned to air today after all. Citadel Broadcasting has stayed silent all-along regarding the fate of the station.

Citadel Broadcasting’s 590 WARM Scranton has gone dark. The station, which has been off the air for the past week, stated that it is too costly to repair the damaged transmitter.

WARM was Northeast Pennsylvania’s premier Top 40 station throughout the 60’s and 70’s before giving way to a News/Talk format. In recent years WARM aired ABC’s True Oldies Network. More available at Dave Yonki’s WARM Memories Blog.

Following is the lead story on WNEP-TV regarding the demise of WARM.
