WFAS-FM moving to NYC

2

WFAS-FM_logoCumulus’ AC WFAS-FM, licensed to Bronxville, NY (Westchester County), is making the move to cover much more of NYC’s core population and Manhattan. It’s currently at 600 Watts @ 667 feet. It will soon be moving 15 miles to the southwest towards Manhattan with 980 Watts @ 532 feet–by the end of the month. The studios will likely join Cumulus’ other stations in Manhattan.


The station formerly simulcast on WFAF (106.3 FM), located in Mount Kisco, New York, allowing WFAS to cover most of the Mid-Hudson Valley, Northern Westchester and Putnam Counties, as well as much of western Connecticut; in 2012, WFAF became WDVY, a simulcast of WDBY.

The station’s broadcast tower and facilities are located in Hartsdale, NY. WFAS has received a CP to move their transmitter to the Norwood section of the Bronx.

Radiodiscussions.com says the station will launch an Urban format next week. Cumulus declined to comment on the station.
