Live from Studio A, WCBE streams eclectic sounds from funk to folk, classics to country, and reggae to rock ’n’ roll. Supporting the Columbus-born and the just visiting, 90.5 plays what’s current.
Bringing you dependable, global, in-depth reporting is a hallmark of NPR. Bringing that same dependability to local reporting is a hallmark of central Ohio’s NPR station. WCBE is your connection to what matters — in your neighborhood, across the country, and around the world.
OurWCBE was established to support Central Ohio’s independent and locally focused public radio station, WCBE 90.5.
First licensed in 1956, WCBE has evolved into a true community asset with over 9,000 members, and up to 100,000 listeners. A new nonprofit, OurWCBE helps WCBE 90.5 continue to deliver local programming and maintain its wide-ranging advocacy of local arts, music, entertainment, food, health, environmental, business and civic involvement. OurWCBE takes the station to the next level of community engagement by providing a platform where listeners and supporters may contribute to WCBE 90.5. Through backing from the community, WCBE can continue to build through equipment, development and programming.
Community-focused, community-supported, with rich history and increasingly engaged staff, 90.5 is the best original, independent network programming.
You make the difference to WCBE’s future.
