History

A construction permit for the station, then allocated to Saranac Lake, New York, was granted to RadioActive on June 6, 2005[2], after having won it at auction in November 2004[3]; the allocation was later moved to Dannemora.[4] Initially assigned the call letters WDLC on February 15, 2008[5], the station first signed on that June as WELX, a simulcast of WCLX (102.9), which at that time had an album oriented rock format.[4] The current WNMR call letters were introduced on April 6, 2009[5]; within a week, the WCLX simulcast was discontinued[6], and the station temporarily went silent.[7] WNMR returned to the air that fall with the current news/talk format.

Programming

Most programming on WNMR is syndicated, including The Dan Patrick Show, The Michael Smerconish Show, The Dave Ramsey Show, some programming from Bloomberg Radio, Free Talk Live, and the Midnight Trucking Radio Network. The station's lone local program, Corm and the Coach, airs in morning drive and is co-hosted by Steve Cormier and Tom Brennan; it had previously aired on WCPV until 2008.[8] Convergence is planning a television simulcast of the show on WGMU.[9]

Weekend programming consists primarily of syndicated lifestyle talk programming, as well as some Sporting News Radio content on Sundays.

WNMR also carries hourly newscasts from ABC News Radio.[10]
