Here at WSKG, we value your patience as we transitioned our radio stations in February. Since the switch we have heard from many of you about your listening preferences and desires.
When we made the programming switch, 105.9 in Cooperstown remained WSKG News programming, with the understanding that was not necessarily a final decision. WSKG’s 91.7 FM, Oneonta, changed from classical music to an all-talk format.
We wanted to hear your opinions. A survey before our programming changes showed members in Cooperstown preferred news programming 2 to 1 over music. Another survey after the switch shows members evenly split between news and music.
We know that because of the nature of broadcasting, there will always be listeners in Cooperstown unhappy with either decision.
So, to reflect the intensely musical nature of the Cooperstown community, WSKG began broadcasting WSKG Classical Music (WSQX) on 105.9 at noon on Thursday, April 18.
Many parts of Cooperstown can also receive WSKG News on 91.7 from Oneonta.
Cooperstown is the ONLY location where WSKG can switch the radio programming on our stations. To be clear, it cannot be switched throughout the day or different days. It has to be one station or the other permanently.
Our listeners spoke out. We listened. Your continuing support is vital to WSKG Classical being a part of the Cooperstown community.
