Port City Radio—Wilmington’s only all-news radio station—has expanded to include an additional FM signal and an AM signal.

Launched in April on 93.7 and 106.3 FM, Port City Radio expanded Saturday to 95.9 FM and 1180 AM, former home of Bach Radio.

Beau Gunn, general manager of Hometown Wilmington Media, said the change is in preparation for a new radio station that Hometown Wilmington Media will unveil later this month.

Port City Radio will remain on all four frequencies until Nov. 29, when Hometown Wilmington Media will debut a new radio station.

“We’re excited to launch our new radio station in response to overwhelming requests from listeners,” Gunn said. “There’s a lot of excitement about the new station. We’ve heard people talking about it for years, and we’ll soon be bringing it to our listeners.”
