Bold Gold Media Group Flips WVOS-AM to News/Talk

Bold Gold Media Group announces it’s flipping the AM side of classic hits WVOS-AM/FM, Liberty, New York (along with two FM translators) to news/talk as “Catskills News Talk.” Bold Gold says, “The station will become the new home of the legacy morning show, ‘Ciliberto & Friends,’ starring popular radio personality Paul Ciliberto, which will form the backbone of the station’s programming, along with greatly expanded local news provided by legendary news director Mike Sakell.” Bold Gold Media New York general manager Dawnim Ciorciari says, “Taking a legacy AM radio station and re-imagining it into an additional radio format in a local market is an exciting expansion of Bold Gold’s local broadcast portfolio, and is a testament to an incredible team of local broadcast professionals, a supportive community, and the importance that local radio continues to have to provide local news, talk and information.” Bold Gold Media New York director of programming Chase Daniels comments, “The launch of ‘Catskills News Talk’ marks another BOLD move in our New York market as we expand our programming offerings and bring back the heritage ‘Voice of Sullivan.’ Putting this station together required a lot of well-thought-out decisions and I’m honored to have had the opportunity to bring it all together.” Beyond morning drive, the company has not revealed programming details other than to say, “Popular radio shows covering a variety of topics including financial market updates, investing, lifestyle, health, politics, sports and others will round out the station’s programming.”
