(Washington, DC) – Since 1957, WGTS 91.9 has been the message of hope to the nation’s capital. 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. This 50,000-watt, Class B station is licensed in Ocean City, Maryland.
“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 Washinton, D.C. area.”
The station will simulcast WGTS 91.9 starting later this year. Atlantic Gateway Communications, Inc. owns WGTS.
