WSUL (98.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Hit Radio format. Licensed to Monticello, New York, United States, the station is currently owned by Vince Benedetto, through licensee Bold Gold Media Group, L.P., and features programing from CNN Radio.[1][2]

History[edit]

WSUL was owned and operated by former disc jockey Dan Dayton and his wife, Lynn (Dan Communications Inc.). Pat Gillen and Dave Driscoll anchored the morning show at one time. For ten years the station played easy listening songs from the '60s and '70s until the station was sold to Reynolds Communications. In 1988, under new Owner/General Manager Bill Reynolds, the radio station developed an Adult-Contemporary format called "Lite Rock" and proceeded to dominate the market. The "Lite Rock" moniker remained into the mid-1990s when the station evolved into a Hot AC format while continuing its market dominance. In the late 1990s the station added a translator at 95.7 FM in Middletown, New York. In 2005, WSUL was sold to Watermark Broadcasting, Inc.

Effective November 30, 2016, Watermark sold WSUL and sister stations WVOS and WVOS-FM to Bold Gold Media Group, L.P. for $1.6 million.
