PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Urban music fans woke up Monday morning to the sound of an old friend.

A new WAMO has returned to the airwaves in Pittsburgh on 100.1 FM.

Two years ago, WAMO 106.7 was sold, ending a decades long tradition of hip-hop, R&B, gospel and jazz. The new WAMO is continuing the hip-hop tradition.

Tim Martz with Martz Communications purchased station WPYT AM and FM in Wilkinsburg and saw the need to fill the void for urban music. He decided to resurrect the once dormant WAMO call letters.
