We’re gratified to see the station move forward under such strong leadership.”
“We are very happy to complete the transaction with Greater Media for WWTR-AM,” said EBC General Manager Alka Agrawal. “EBC has a long successful track record of delivering quality programming to this niche market of over 400,000 South Asians. As the audience and programming opportunities continue to grow, we look forward to taking EBC to the next level.”
