Former licensee Gerard Turro's frequencies have been re-born - with a new owner and new format.
"The Bridge FM" is owned by Bridgelight, LLC, a subsidiary of
Calvary Chapel Old Bridge, a non-denominational evangelical Christian church. The Bridge FM ties together four FM frequencies, including two translator frequencies formerly used by Gerard Turro to retransmit the programming of WJUX(FM) (as JukeBox Radio) until he lost his 9-year battle with the FCC last year.
Now Calvary owns WJUX (99.7) in Monticello, N.Y; WWDR (89.7) in Howell, N.J. - formerly WPDQ; and FM translators at 103.1 MHz in Fort Lee, N.J. and 94.3 MHz in Pomona, NY.
Calvary Chapel executives say The Bridge is the only non-commercial Christian FM in the region.
The signal originates in Howell, NJ, according to Calvary Chapel, which paid $875,000 for WWDR(FM) and a total of $3.3 million for the other frequencies. Chapel said the total power output is 11,000 watts.
The format is a blend of Biblical teaching and contemporary praise and
worship music.
"As the only non-commercial Christian radio station in the area, we are excited about providing Bible-based family programming to our community. We have been thrilled to hear from dozens of listeners whose faith has been strengthened and who appreciate the quality programs aired on our station," said Dennis Radeke, General Manager of The Bridge FM.
The Bridge FM web site at www.bridgefm.org features a live web stream simulcast and the latest programming information.
