It’s official: WVKC student programming to move online

wvkc3WKVC has signed an agreement with Tri States Public Radio that will bring public programming to the Galesburg airwaves, both from national sources like NPR and regional programs from TSPR, which is based in Macomb, Ill.

The agreement is expected to become operative in mid-September.

As TKS previously reported, student shows will no longer be broadcasted on the 90.7 FM wavelength. Instead, they will be featured on a new, second HD channel. Improved equipment will also make internet streaming more reliable.

TSPR will be providing the new equipment for both of these shifts, which are expected to bring WVKC into the digital age. The new equipment will be installed on TSPR’s dime, with no added costs for Knox or WVKC.

Despite these changes, the WVKC staff and operations will continue as usual. There will also be more opportunities for students interested in broadcast journalism to intern with TSPR.
