As first reported yesterday on HisAir, WGTS/Wash DC is expanding with the purchase of a new signal.
WGTS/Wash DC has been bringing the message of hope to the nation’s capital since 1957. That mission is expanding as the station just announced it’s in the process of purchasing a new, full-power signal to reach the Delmarva Peninsula of Maryland and Delaware. WGTS has signed an agreement with American University to purchase NPR affiliate 88.3, WRAU/Ocean City, MD. WRAU is a 50,000-watt, Class B station.
“For decades, it’s been our desire to serve the extended communities just beyond Washington, D.C.,” said WGTS general manager and president Kevin Krueger. “Expanding to the Eastern Shore helps us reach the 500,000 people who live and go to school there as well as the thousands of vacationers from the Washington, D.C. area.”
The station will simulcast WGTS 91.9 starting later this year. Atlantic Gateway Communications, Inc. owns WGTS
