WTOR airs a brokered multicultural radio format targeted primarily at the South Asian community in Greater Toronto Area and Niagara Peninsula in Canada. The station's programming is primarily in Punjabi, Urdu and Hindi. Some programs are aimed at Sikhs and other religious and ethnic groups in South Asia. Hosts usually pay for an hour of broadcast time each day and may sell commercials to support their program.
WTOR is a daytime-only station, signing off at sunset to protect 50,000 watt Class A clear-channel station WABC in New York City. WTOR's 13,000 watt directional signal is aimed almost completely into the province of Ontario (thus arguably making the station a border blaster). The transmitter is located off Langdon Road in Ransomville, New York. It's only a few miles from the Canadian border, across Lake Ontario from Toronto.
