I don't understand the numbers you posted other than KW.

Just have to wait and see
Effective radiated power (ERP), synonymous with equivalent radiated power, is an IEEE standardized definition of directional radio frequency (RF) power, such as that emitted by a radio transmitter.

WPGH has a transmitter with an output of 45.6 kW
It also has an antenna with a gain of 13.41 dB that makes the output of the transmitter stronger
45.6 kW + 13.41 dB gain = 1000 kW ERP

and this is the WPGH coverage map for 55.6 mile contour / 9726 sq. mi. area / Est. Pop. 2,976,383
