The more money raised during the Warp Drive means less time used for the Fall on-air fundraiser. The concept is simple: a full day of on-air pitching will be eliminated for every $38K raised in advance. When WCBE achieves this goal, the station can get YOU back to what's important -- the shows you love to listen to, such as Morning Edition, Fresh Air,  The World Cafe, and Afropop Worldwide, all interruption free.

It's our birthday, and you're invited! On September 26th, 1956, WCBE went on the air for the first time - for an entire hour. So this Monday (September 26th), we're celebrating our sixtieth anniversary with an open house. Come on by 90.5's studios between 4pm and 8pm. We'll have local pop from Rambling House Soda, snacks from Pattycake Bakery, and tours of our studios! Stop by to say "hi!"

You’ll hear from Sue Harshe, Roots Of Creation, Emily Syring Quartet, The Clarks, Honey And Blue, Fox N Hound, and many many more! It’s a night of great music for a great cause – keep the music alive on 90.5. That’s Friday, September 23rd!

WCBE is currently not broadcasting from our Newark transmitter. We have several complicating factors, that have lead to our Newark signal being off-air;, however, two main factors plague us at the moment.

One is our tower lease in Newark.  There's a payment glitch we're working on with our owner (Columbus City Schools).  We are hopefully that this issue will be resolved resolved by August 23rd.

Another issue is our physical transmitter there.  It's over 25 years old now, far beyond its design life.  Getting a new transmitter is the ultimate solution for this element.
