Episode Thirteen:  Dual Career Relationships

 

The heteronormative society of the past is largely being replaced, but with this progress comes the challenge of both parties in a partnership having a career.  This is the case for over 80% of couples today, and these couples must learn to juggle a relationship, a career and, often, raising children, all at once.  At 9:01 this Thursday night, listen to Ria explain how properly prioritizing can be an extremely useful tool for your brand on Central Ohio’s NPR Station, 90.5 WCBE.

Episode Nine:  Sparking Simplicity

In today’s world, complicating your life is almost inevitable.  It has become so easy to stray from what really matters and get caught up in the distractions of modern society.  However, keeping simplicity in mind can be very important.  Contemplating what really matters to you and considering your “why” are vital to maintaining simplicity in your life.  At 9:01 this Thursday night, listen to Ria discuss how sparking simplicity can be a great tool for your brand on Central Ohio’s NPR Station, 90.5 WCBE.

Episode Eight: How to Get Down With Generations

It can be difficult to effectively relate to someone outside of your own generation.  Whether in a personal or professional setting, whether with a person younger or older than you, connecting with people of a different generation can be challenging.  However, learning to properly approach these situations can be immensely helpful and rewarding.  At 9:01 this Thursday night, listen to Ria discuss how getting down with generations can be a great tool for your brand on Central Ohio’s NPR Station, 90.5 WCBE.

Episode Five:  Fiddling With Your Fear

Everyone experiences fear.  While most of us think of fear as a negative feeling that is only an obstacle, embracing and confronting your fears can greatly benefit your life.  Whether your fears are true or unwarranted, learn to examine and deal with them in an effective and creative way.  At 9:01 this Thursday night, listen to Ria discuss how facing fears can be an effective tool for your brand on Central Ohio’s NPR Station, 90.5 WCBE.

Episode Four: Spunk Back Into Our Sexual Health

Most people do not need to hear that the sex toy industry has become a fifteen billion dollar industry, or that the sexually charged bestseller, Fifty Shades of Gray, sold more than 125 million copies, to realize that sex is important to people.  However, you might forget the wellness benefits of maintaining your sexual health.  At 9:01 this Thursday night, listen to Ria explore sexual health and the benefits this tool can have for your brand on Central Ohio’s NPR Station, 90.5 WCBE.

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.
