All Catholic WQOM 1060 AM debuts
On September 16, a day after papers were passed, new owners took over
WBIX AM 1060 in Natick. Now they are broadcasting all Catholic radio
as "The Station of the Cross" with sister stations in Buffalo and Rochester, NY. They will soon have the call letters WQOM, for "Queen of Mercy".
It was formerly all business news radio.
The station is due to upgrade their day and night power soon with a construction permit. For now, they may be operating at reduced power. On its first day the station featured a recitation of the Rosary and programs like "Calling All Catholics". Ironically enough the station is licensed to Natick, MA, hometown of Boston College football legend Doug Flutie--he of the "Hail Mary" pass!
Ooops..the home age states WQOM will proclaim the truth with clarity! Not on an AM station that will have to contend with WBZ-AM 1030's IBOC hash during the daytime and WEPN-AM 1050 in NYC and KYW-AM 1060 in Philly. OK, so they won't be buffetted by a 1060 in Quebec or 1070 in the Canadian Maritimes.Post a Comment
