A sad day for local radio: WPKN ditches Montauk-New London signal


After five years as a regional broadcaster covering the I-95 from Stamford, CT to Westerly, RI,  WPKN has given up its Montauk frequency and will no longer broadcast on 88.7 FM. Today at 12:00 noon, Hamptons Community Radio will assume control of the signal. WPKN will be heard no more on the East End of Long Island and east of the Connecticut River.

It is a sad day but it was ultimately a business decision...and a very difficult one...but maybe it will help save WPKN???? I wound not say we "ditched it"...we leased it. A very difficult decision that none of us enjoyed making.
