We've narrowed the issue to our STL line (a special AT&T line that carries the audio from our studios to LeVeque Tower). Paul's at LeVeque now waiting for an AT&T tech; we're trying to get our trouble ticket escalated, too.

While you’re preparing your Thanksgiving feast tomorrow, we invite you to feast your ears, as well!  We have a great line-up of special programs through the day…including the pilot for a local show for which we’d love your feedback.

WCBE will be providing live election coverage from NPR. Our regularly scheduled programming will be pre-empted Tuesday evening from 8pm - Midnight.
 

 Join us for the Trekkie Trivia Challenge! WCBE is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek's first episode airing (The Man Trap, Sept. 8, 1966, NBC). Later today, at 2:00 PM, we'll play Star Trek themed songs, and we'll have our first Trekkie Trivia Challenge - where you will have the opportunity to ask our Alpha Geek trivia questions about the show. We'll also be live streaming the Trekkie Trivia Challenge via Facebook!  It'll be more fun than a barrel of tribbles! Live long and prosper! 

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.

Weather permitting, WCBE will be off the air later this morning maintenance work needs to be completed a the top the LeVeque Tower,where 90.5's transmitter resides.

WCBE's broadcast signal, 90.5 FM, is currently down due to a technical outage involving our transmitter line. Technicians are currently troubleshooting the issue. Our webstream is still broadcasting at wcbe.org. You can also access our webstream by using the NPR App, or via TuneIn Radio. Please visit our website and Facebook page for updates. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. 

Update: 12/15/2015 @11:09AM

WCBE's broadcast stream has been restored. Thank you for your patience!

Due to maintenance work being done on LeVeque Tower, WCBE will be broadcasting at low power from approximately 1:30pm-2:30pm Wednesday, December 9th. Listeners may have trouble hearing the signal outside of the 270 outer belt. Our on-air broadcast is always available on our webstream, just click on the play button at the top of the page!

Happy Thanksgiving! Be sure to get a heapin' helping of satisfying NPR programming this Thursday on 90.5FM!
