Transmitter Fundraiser Success

A quick update:
Thanks to everyone who helped WCRS in our time of we need. We are now back on the air on 98.3 FM with a new transmitter that will be able to bring community radio to the airwaves of Central Ohio for many years into the future. It wouldn't have been possible without the generous outpouring of support from you our listeners.

WCRS Transmitter Replacement Fundraiser

WCRS is in need of a new transmitter. 98.3 has been off the air due to a transmitter failure. We are a non-commercial, listener supported community radio station. WCRS is a volunteer, non-profit radio station that relies on grants and donations from our listeners. If you support local arts and radio we need your help keeping our station alive. Any amount helps and we greatly appreciate you!
