SYRACUSE -- The Tipp Hill-based KISS-FM is looking for new ways to get on the air with a low-power FM transmitter in Syracuse. The station is also exploring the possibilities of simulcasting on transmitters in several other nearby communities.
Owner/PD Brad Stone tells CNYRadio.com he's "assembling a committee to oversee the operations of our station." He says KISS-FM's parent company -- NexGen Digital Media (no relation to the radio automation software of a similar name) -- is also studying the feasibility of signing on transmitters in Auburn, Oswego and Central Square.
"No papers have been filed yet," says Stone, "but we are looking to bring in a team to help us move things forward." Membership on the committee is mostly on an invitation-only basis, but Stone says "we welcome people who feel they are qualified to contact us."
The station can be heard online at www.kissfmcny.com.
On a side note, the KISS-FM website and the live audio stream will be down from June 7-9 for scheduled maintenance. The website debunks "rumors that our station will be shutting down," saying "we can assure you this is far from the truth." The announcement invites anyone interested in assisting with the upgrade contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
