104.7 Buffalo

Alternative Buffalo Adding Second Signal

Entercom Alternative “107.7 Alternative Buffalo” WLKK Wethersfield Township, NY will add a second signal on Monday, May 11 to better reach listeners in Buffalo proper. 104.7 W284AP Buffalo will begin airing the Alternative format via 102.5 WTSS-HD2. The translator recently completed an upgrade to 250 watts at 103 meters where it covers the east side of Buffalo including the area around the University of Buffalo (Coverage Map). Entercom purchased W284AP last year from Family Life Ministries for $125,000. WLKK rimshots the Buffalo market and received a 1.4 share in the Winter 2015 Nielsen Audio ratings.

The $125,000 purchase will see the translator rebroadcast 102.5 WTSS-HD2.

The station would change its originating station from 90.3 KMRO Camarillo, CA to 88.9 WGEN-FM Monee, IL. Both stations simulcast the programming of the Christian “Worship On The Way” Network.
