WASP (AM) - WASP Prior To Suspending Operations

WASP Prior To Suspending Operations

The operations for WASP and its newly acquired Keymarket affiliate stations in the area moved from its longtime location on Route 88 to a new state-of-the-art facility at Foster Plaza in Greentree, just outside of Pittsburgh's city limits.

In April 2007, Keymarket Communications successfully applied for a facility change to reduce its power from 5,000 watts directional to 1,000 watts non-directional. The change allowed WASP to only have to broadcast from one single tower, rather than two as had been the case in years past. Some facilities related to both the AM and FM stations reside in the same building that had been WASP's home for many years. The building has been expanded and now resides next to the athletic complex of California University of Pennsylvania.

On August 28, 2010, WASP went silent (off the air). As of Saturday, September 18, 2010, WASP resumed its ongoing simulcast of WPKL.

On June 28, 2012, WASP went silent again. Keymarket surrendered the station's license to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on July 6, 2012. The FCC cancelled the license and deleted the WASP call sign from its database on July 19, 2012.

Famous quotes containing the words operations, suspending, wasp and/or prior:

    You can’t have operations without screams. Pain and the knife—they’re inseparable.
    —Jean Scott Rogers. Robert Day. Mr. Blount (Frank Pettingell)

    Play is a major avenue for learning to manage anxiety. It gives the child a safe space where she can experiment at will, suspending the rules and constraints of physical and social reality. In play, the child becomes master rather than subject.... Play allows the child to transcend passivity and to become the active doer of what happens around her.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    Why should the generations overlap one another at all? Why cannot we be buried as eggs in neat little cells with ten or twenty thousand pounds each wrapped round us in Bank of England notes, and wake up, as the Sphinx wasp does, to find that its papa and mamma have not only left ample provision at its elbow but have been eaten by sparrows some weeks before we began to live consciously on our own accounts?
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    And Venus to the Loves around
    Remarked how ill we all dissembled.
    —Matthew Prior (1664–1721)
