Buckley Broadcasting's WOR(AM) in New York plans to move studios and offices next year to lower Manhattan.
The station has been in its present midtown location for 76 years. Buckley President Richard Buckley told the N.Y. Post WOR's lease will expire in 2006 and he had looked at several buildings but signed a 15-year lease for an entire floor at 111 Broadway.
The station has been at 1440 Broadway since 1928.
One of the reasons Buckley cited for the move is the new headquarters tower for the New York Times would block WOR's signal to its transmission site in New Jersey.
