WJFF applies for new frequencies
Dec 08, 2021 12:23 pm
The latest round of applications for full-power, noncommercial radio stations is in at the Federal Communications Commission and the Hudson Valley only got one possible frequency filled. Radio Catskill, Inc., which runs WJFF 90.5-FM in Jeffersonville in Sullivan County, has applied to occupy another frequency, 89.5-FM near Livingston Manor. WJFF is attempting to enlarge its signal substantially, also applying for another frequency in Hamlin, Pennsylvania, near Scranton. Other than that there are 21 applications for new commercial radio stations in New York, almost all from religious groups and four from St. Lawrence University. None of the other applications are near the Hudson Valley besides the proposal from WJFF. The FCC is expected to award the new licenses next year.
