WTSB Radio has been granted permission from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to broadcast on an FM translator.
WTSB Radio, which is heard on AM-1090 is now being simulcast on 105.5 FM, Lamm Media Group President Carl Lamm announced Monday.
WTSB began broadcasting on 105.5 FM on Sunday, September 18th. Both the stations AM and FM transmitters are located in Clayton.
WTSB purchased the FM license earlier this year and received permission from the FCC to relocate the channel from a small town in South Carolina to Clayton, NC. Tower climbers spent Saturday afternoon atop a 195 foot tower owned by Lamm Media mounting the new FM antenna. After some testing the station began simulcasting Sunday morning on 105.5 FM. WTSB will still continue to be heard on 1090AM.
Lamm said unlike the 1090 AM frequency where the station is required by the FCC to sign off the air each evening, 105.5 FM will provide local programming 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
