With a night time power of 1 kilowatt, WNYC is not one of the most easily heard stations in New York. In fact I have only been able to catch the signal of this station just a couple of times. 820 kHz is usually dominated by Radio Paradise in St. Kitts with its boring religious programming. WNYC was heard with a decent signal and a decent station identification one morning at Lista in January 2011, however. My signal report was verified by Lorraine Mattox, who has the nice title “Manager of Listener Services”.
WNYC is New York’s Public Radio and has a long history dating back to the early 1920s. Its 1 kilowatt mediumwave transmitter is located in Kearny, New Jersey, just west of New York City.
