A Connecticut AM and FM Translator Sailing To New Owner


On June 19, 1934, this AM radio station began broadcasting from the top floors of the Hadley Furniture Co. building in Waterbury, Conn. It landed on its current broadcast frequency in 1939, and in 1958 saw a power upgrade from 1kw to 5kw.

In the modern era, an FM translator at 97.7 MHz was added to give some “revitalization” to the facility that’s used 1320 kHz for nearly 90 years.

Now, the AM and FM translator with hyperlocal programming targeting the second-largest city in New Haven County are changing hands.
