Coming up this Saturday afternoon at 3pm on  American RadioWorks, correspondent Emily Hanford examines the history and influence of the University of Phoenix, one of the nation's largest colleges, and explores how Phoenix and other for-profits are shaping the future of education. For-profit colleges have deep roots in American history, but until recently they were a tiny part of the higher education landscape. Now they are big players. More than one in 10 college students attends a for-profit.

Hello, listeners!

Due to recent developments, WCBE will no longer be broadcasting at our former 106.7 FM, Newark signal. At this time, we are trying to acquire another frequency in this area. By mid-October,  we hope to hear whether or not our licenses both in Newark and Columbus are renewed.
