Somerset, KY – Key Broadcasting, a Forcht Group of Kentucky Company, announced today that beginning Wednesday, March 26, WTLO 1480 AM will broadcast 24 hours a day. Since WTLO first went on the air in 1958, the station has signed off at sundown. Now listeners of the Somerset area can enjoy WTLO day and night.


“We couldn’t be more pleased to kick off the 50th Anniversary of WTLO than by announcing that the station has the ability for the first time to broadcast overnight,” said Gary Phelps, WTLO Station Manager. “We have a lot of improvements planned for the station, including the sign-on of a new FM station in mid-summer, so this is the first of many.”


By broadcasting 24 hours a day, WTLO will be able to provide better coverage of elections, breaking news and severe weather in the Pulaski County area.  Within the next few months, WTLO also plans to kick off a new Web site featuring streaming, making the live broadcasts available on the World Wide Web.
