Non-commercial, educational station (WYRS 90.7 FM Manahawkin) commenced a limited broadcast day (in mono) at 4 pm on Monday March 27th 1995. Over the years, a 24/7 schedule (in stereo) became possible after acquiring automation, satellite, and upgraded studio equipment. The station’s “Christian Family Community” programming includes teaching, music, and educational issues from local and national sources. A faithful all-volunteer staff, and listener support remains the backbone for our survival.
Translator (W273AO 102.5) signed on in March of 2005 - providing improved in-home penetration for our listeners in Whiting.
Through God's grace the site of former Marine Coastal Station WSC was purchased in August 2003. After extensive repair work, it became our primary transmitter site in July 2007. Coverage increased significantly and the original transmitter location was re-licensed as an auxiliary (backup) site.
In February 2012, sister station (WLNJ 91.7 Lakehurst) came on-air. It provides city-grade coverage to northern Ocean County and beyond. WYRS Broadcasting can now be heard (N-S) on the Garden State Parkway from Eatontown to Ocean City, and (W) to New Lisbon. Internet streaming since 2006 also provides world-wide coverage!
Our hope and prayer is that programming from WYRS Broadcasting will help equip listeners for a victorious life (on earth) and eternity (in heaven) – through saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
