Taunton Gazette on WPEP facing deletion

TAUNTON - Radio station WPEP 1570 AM, the city's homegrown - and lone
- broadcast voice could soon be silenced for good.
The Federal Communications Commission on April 27 approved a proposal
application from the owner of WNSH AM of Beverly - which operates on
the same 1570 AM frequency - to boost its daytime power from 500 watts
to 50,000 watts.
In order for the Beverly station to increase its wattage WPEP will
have to relinquish its use of the 1570 frequency, to avoid interfering
with the stronger signal. All signs are that the out-of-state licensee
and owner of WPEP has all along been a willing partner to the deal
