About Us


WCAP-AM 980, “The Voice of the Valley” is the definitive Talk, News and Information Station of the Merrimack Valley and Southern NH.

980 WCAP carries the most listened to original talk programs.  We also feature unique one of a kind programs and guests that give insight into information that you will only hear with us.

UML Hockey and High School Football.  More than a news station, WCAP offers the “Quad Consumer” (boomers taking care of their parents and their children) the ability to connect with the newsmakers and issues that influence their lives. WCAP’s listeners don’t simply listen…they react! They call in and discuss, and give their opinions. But most importantly, they pay attention to the hosts, the topics, and the sponsors’ messages.

980 WCAP is locally owned and operated by Merrimack Valley Radio, LLC,  Samuel Poulten, (Army LTC (ret), OIF Veteran), and a group of other local business people. WCAP broadcasts with 5,000 watts of power.
