Concord University students to launch new radio station

ATHENS —  Concord University officials announced Tuesday morning that the university will soon be home to West Virginia’s newest radio station.

WVCU, also known as “The Cure,” has been granted licensure by the Federal Communications Commission, and Concord’s application has been approved to build and operate a LP-FM educational station on the university campus.

“This is a big day for Concord,” CU President Dr. Kendra Boggess said. “We are celebrating another educational opportunity for our students today and for years to come.”

Soon visitors will be able to tune in to the student-managed station by turning their radio dials to 97.7. Construction is underway and is expected to be complete this fall.

Jessica Lilly, adjunct instructor and WVCU advisor, said the station’s antenna is designed for 300 watts. She said the signal could reach to Princeton and possibly Flat Top.
