After Audacy acquired the intellectual property of Hip Hop/R&B “WAMO 107.3660 WAMO Wilkinsburg/W297BU Pittsburgh earlier this year, Martz Communications Group is donating the AM signal to the Chuck Leavens led Pittsburgh Public Media.

Martz will receive a tax credit for an amount determined via an appraisal done by the end of the year. The 1.4kW daytime signal will join PPM’s other holdings which include co-located 1550 WZUM Braddock, 101.1 W266CV Braddock/Pittsburgh and 88.1 WZUM-FM Bethany WV all of which operate as “The Pittsburgh Jazz Channel“.

With the four-year window keeping the translator bound to the AM signal expired, the Audacy programmed Hip Hop/R&B format will now originate from 107.9 WDSY-HD2 Pittsburgh allowing the AM to be eliminated from the operation.
