Cox Media Urban AC “Kiss 104.1” WALR Palmetto, GA is now simulcasting on 93.5 W228CA Suwanee to increase its coverage in Atlanta’s northeastern suburbs. With WALR’s transmitter located in Newnan, southwest of Atlanta, the addition of the 93.5 translator gives the station coverage in the towns of Buford, Gainesville, Lawrenceville, and Suwanee (Coverage Map). Cox acquired W228CA and 97.7 W249CK Buford last year from Tugart Properties for $450,000. The latter translator holds a CP to relocate to 92.5 in Duluth, GA.
Cox Media has agreed to purchase a pair of suburban Atlanta translators for $450,000. Art Sutton’s Tugart Properties will sell 93.5 W228CA Oakwood and 97.7 W249CK Buford to Cox in the deal. Both translators are attempting to upgrade their signals. W228CA currently holds a CP to relocate to Suwanee with 250 watts at 264.9 meters with an additional application for 250 watts at 414 meters. The translator will cover Atlanta’s northeastern suburbs including Buford, Gainesville, and Lawrenceville. W249CK’s application will see it shift to 92.5 licensed to Duluth with 250 watts at 159 meters. From there it will serve towns such as Lawrenceville, Suwanee, and Snellville. Both translators are currently licensed to rebroadcasting Cox’ 106.1 WNGC Arcade.
