Audacy has announced it will acquire the the intellectual property of Hip Hop “WAMO 107.3” 660 WAMO Wilkinsburg/107.3 W297BU Pittsburgh from Martz Communications Group while operating the stations via LMA starting Monday, April 4.
Audacy had previously begun operating Martz’ 100.1 W261DU Pittsburgh via LMA in October 2020 to rebroadcast News/Talk 1020 KDKA. At that time WAMO’s Hip Hop programming moved from W261DU to W297BU.
The WAMO brand has much heritage in Pittsburgh first on 860 and 105.9 and then 106.7 from 1956 until their 2010 sale to Catholic operator Saint Joseph Missions. Martz would resurrect the call letters and format the following year on 660 and then adding the translators.
WAMO will join an Audacy Pittsburgh cluster that includes KDKA, Sports “93.7 The Fan” KDKA-FM, Hot AC “100.7 Star” WBZZ, and Country “Y108” 107.9 WDSY.
