Audacy announced an agreement to acquire heritage Urban WAMO-AM 660/Pittsburgh from Martz Communications Group. In connection with the agreement, Audacy will provide programming to WAMO and its FM translator at 107.3, pursuant to a local marketing agreement (LMA) that begins April 4.

WAMO is Pittsburgh’s home for hip-hop and the only Urban station in the market, with a long heritage of super-serving the African American community and has played a pivotal role in providing content in the moments that matter to the African American community in Pittsburgh.

“There are very few brands that have been as influential in the city of Pittsburgh as WAMO and I cannot express our level of excitement to welcome such a great radio station and the terrific staff to the Audacy Pittsburgh family,” said Michael Spacciapolli, SVP/Market Manager, Audacy Pittsburgh. “We will bring scale and leadership in the Urban format, while continuing WAMO’s mission of celebrating cultural diversity and commitment to promoting quality diverse music, community support, fan engagement, and local and national news.”
