WCBE is off the air due to lightning that struck our transmitter at Leveque Tower early Tuesday morning.

Our engineer says it will take a couple of days at least to obtain the necessary parts and make the necessary repairs. Listeners may still access WCBE's signal via our webstream on this website.

UPDATE (7/12 1:40 a.m.): Our engineer was able to borrow a low-power transmitter, which is able to broadcast our signal to most of Columbus. For those unable to tune in the signal, our webstream is still available. WCBE thanks you for your patience as we continue to work to repair our damaged transmitter.
