Renda donates 1360

1360 WMNYRenda Broadcasting has announced that they are donating WMNY-AM (1360 McKeesport) to the Pentecostal Temple Development Corporation. The move is made as a charitable contribution. The Pentecostal Temple Development Corporation alo owns WGBN-AM (1150 New Kensington).

WMNY began as WMCK and is probably best known during its Top-40 heyday as WIXZ. Renda bought the station in 1974 as the first station the company would own. The company later sold it to purchase other properties including WSHH-FM (99.7) and WJAS-AM (1320). In the late 1990s, Serena Communications who operated WIXZ, merged with Renda and the station became All-talk WPTT and the home of recently-laid-off WTAE-AM (1250) hosts Lynn Cullen and Doug Hoerth. The station became WMNY in 2008 with a financial format which lasted three years when it returned to syndicated talk. WPTT runs 5kW daytime from a Glen Hazel tower and 1kW night from a Liberty Boro tower.
