WHAZ is a Christian radio station licensed to Troy, New York and serves New York's
Capital District. The station is owned by the locally-based Capital Media and broadcasts on 1330 kHz at 1 kilowatt daytime, 49 watts nighttime from a transmitter located on Van Schaick Island in the neighboring city of Cohoes. WHAZ's programming is also simulcasted on three FM stations on the fringes of the market:
*94.7 WBAR-FM Lake Luzerne (Lake George/Saratoga region)
*97.3 WMYY Schoharie (Capital Region, Mohawk Valley)
*104.1 WMNV Rupert, Vermont (rimshot into Manchester and Rutland)

Recently 97.5 WHAZ-FM Hoosick Falls (Bennington VT), replaced the "Classic CCM" format it had broadcast for a year, with simulcast programing heard on the other four stations with the exception of Dr. Joy Browne during mid-afternoons.

History

WHAZ is recognized as being one the oldest radio stations in New York State, signing on in the summer of 1922 using 790 kHz in a time-share agreement with WGY. The station was operated by the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. At the behest of General Electric, which desired to operate it's flagship station WGY with an unlimited schedule, WHAZ was eventually authorized to switch to 1300 kHz. The NARBA frequency shift of 1941 moved WHAZ to 1330 kHz, daytime-only operations (minus one night a week in a historical timeshare with the timeshare of 1330's in New York City.

With the launch of WRPI FM on November 1, 1957, and most of the school's programming on the AM band being transmitted via carrier-current WRPI AM 640 by that time, WHAZ's future became expendable, only being operated for 6 hours on Monday evenings. The station was eventually sold in 1967 to new owner's who decided to program the station with a Christian religious format, which holds to this day. In 1973, WHAZ nearly added an FM variant of its programming on 107.7 MHz, however the death of the station's then-owner led those plans being scrapped by his children in favor of country music with the station becoming WGNA, now the regular #1 station in the market. WHAZ was sold again to the predecessor of current owner Capital Media in 1978.
