The Ukrainian Radio Program

On August 15, 1950, the Ukrainian radio program of Pittsburgh, began its vital service to the Ukrainian-American community in the tri-state area. It is heard each Sunday from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. on radio station WPIT, 730 AM, with a power output of 5,000 watts. The program is presented in Ukrainian and English and features music, news, commentaries, social announcements, anniversaries, commercials and obituaries. Its primary objective is to maintain the Ukrainian identity of its listeners through music, language and traditions.
