WOWO to add FM simulcast

Statement issued Thursday by Federated Media:

FEDERATED MEDIA today announced a new milestone in the history of Heritage News Talk Radio Station 1190AM WOWO in Fort Wayne, IN. Beginning in April 2012, Fort Wayne’s most listened to radio station will become available on FM at 92.3. This will be a full simulcast carrying the entire programming line up currently heard at 1190AM.

Federated Chief Operating Officer, Mark Deprez stated “The move to FM is a natural enhancement for the WOWO brand that is synonymous with Fort Wayne. WOWO is, and has always been, the one radio outlet that northeast Indiana can count on for breaking news, weather, traffic, information. WOWO’s strong service commitment to our community, along with the entertaining and engaging personalities, has solidified WOWO in the hearts of many of our local residents. The move to 92.3 FM will re-introduce WOWO to listeners that have migrated over the years to FM and also open WOWO’s brand to new and younger audience.”

Since 1925 in its humble beginnings atop the Main Street Auto building in downtown Fort Wayne, 1190 WOWO has been a beacon for our community. From its mighty 50,000 transmitter at 1190AM, people in northeast Indiana, along with the entire eastern seaboard have experienced the news of war, the dawn of Rock and Roll, the end of oppression and sound of victory! Federated Media looks forward to this new chapter in this storied radio station’s history that is uniquely WOWO!
