Monticello, NY – Bold Gold Media Group has announced the debut of their new local radio station, Catskills News Talk on Sullivan County’s first radio station, 1240 WVOS-AM.  The news/talk format will also be heard on two new local FM frequencies, 92.5 FM and 94.9 FM.  WVOS-AM which celebrated its 75th Anniversary last year, will be broadcasting again as the Voice of Sullivan and the Catskills.  The station will become the new home of the legacy morning show, Ciliberto & Friends starring popular Radio Personality Paul Ciliberto, which will form the backbone of the station’s programming; along with greatly expanded local news provided by legendary News Director Mike Sakell. 


“Taking a legacy AM Radio Station, and re-imagining it into an additional radio format in a local market is an exciting expansion of Bold Gold’s local broadcast portfolio, and is a testament to an incredible team of local broadcast professionals, a supportive community, and the importance that local radio continues to have to provide local news, talk and information.” - Dawn Ciorciari, General Manager, Bold Gold Media NY


“For close to 18 years Ciliberto & Friends has become the morning show dedicated to the local community. I’m very excited for the move to Catskills News Talk. This move gives Ciliberto & Friends the opportunity to expand the focus on the local community with more time dedicated to guests and information. I’m also thrilled for the expansion of the trusted local news product with Catskills News and Mike Sakell being even more a part of the show. This new project exemplifies Bold Gold Media's commitment to the local community and local radio.” -Paul Ciliberto, Ciliberto & Friends Host and Senior Advisor, Bold Gold Media NY
