Regardless of how much money it raised, the response of listeners to a radiothon appeal for donations from listeners apparently impressed creditors of Pulse 87.7. The station says it has gotten a financial reprieve and will continue broadcasting.
“Because of your overwhelming response, we here at PULSE 87 have been given a reprieve from some of our creditors and now have some additional time to attempt to raise money through more conventional means to continue broadcasting,” says the station website, which no longer displays the appeal for cash donations.
Pulse 87.7, owned by publicly traded Mega Media Group, is actually licensed as a low-power TV station. Operating on Channel 6, the audio of WNYZ-LP can be heard on most FM receivers, just to the left of the dedicated non-commercial band.
