"People's Wave Radio," also known as "Narodnaya Volna," said it has launched 24/7 Russian-language programming on WKDM(AM) at 1380 kHz in New York, offering news/talk and entertainment to Russian-speaking listeners in the tri-state area.
"Ever since we launched the first Russian-language radio broadcast over the airwaves in New York back in 1997 with eight to ten hours of our own programming five days a week, our listeners have been clamoring for us to give them more," said Larry Weinberg, the station founder and president. He said there are some 800,000 Russian-speaking households in the Metro area. The organization had been broadcasting on WPAT(AM).
The station is a subsidiary of Novoye Russkoye Slovo, believed to be the oldest Russian-language newspaper in the world and the only daily in North America.
