WCBN's engineering staff is working toward a projected December, 2013 timeframe to deploy our new FM signal. Check out the signal increase on this map. The blue line shows the current signal coverage, while the red line outlines the area we will cover after upgrading our signal to 3000 watts.
There are about 274,000 residents in the new coverage area, compared to 118,000 in the current coverage area. We expect improved reception in places like Dexter and Saline.
Support from our listeners, volunteers, and the Regents of the University of Michigan has made this upgrade project possible.
"Jeopardy!" viewers on Wednesday night, April 24, 2013 gained extremely valuable knowledge upon seeing this clue on the screen.
IngenuityPictures has produced a short documentary about WCBN to mark our 40th year of FM broadcasting. Our DJs and volunteers explain the history and current state of the radio station, and why this radio station is important to the culture of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Do you enjoy learning about new music? Want to explore our amazing record library? We are always on the lookout for new student DJs!
