After WXKS raised its power from 5 to 50 kilowatts in 2008, the station often booms in on 1200 kHz at Lista. At times there might be some interference from CFGO in Ottawa, but WXKS definitely has the best signal most times. I sent along an audio recording to Operations Director Dylan Sprague who swiftly confirmed my reception of the station.
When I heard WXKS at Lista in January 2011, the station had a talk format branded as “Rush Radio 1200”. The station has since flipped to a comedy format and now identifies as “Matty’s Comedy 1200“. The WXKS transmitter is located in Newton just outside Boston.
