After six years in the making, we finally got our antenna up and powered on at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, September 8 (just in time for the 25th South End Art Hop). This was a labor of love by dozens of dedicated community volunteers and our partners at VCAM and RETN. To say we are excited is the understatement of the year.
And catch our locally made programming for this fall!
Yes! Well, mostly.
Hang with us this week, we are getting the station on the air and raising our antenna as you read this, so our stream will be sometimes down. But, it will be worth it because by Art Hop (September 8 & 9) we plan to flip the switch on the antenna and begin (finally) broadcasting at 99.3FM.
So, hang in there with us! We got some great radio for you to hear. You can listen to us streaming on this website (click the arrow on the bottom), find us on the TuneIn app for your smart phone, and (super duper soon) on your preset radio dial at 99.3FM!
Soon it will be the magical time of the year in the South End, the SEABA Art Hop! Friday, September 8 and Saturday, September 9 WBTV-LP will be live broadcasting from our brand new studios at the Media Factory at 208 Flynn Ave. Come learn about the station, see live radio in action, or even get interviewed on the air with one of our programmers.
More info on the party coming soon, but here is a sneak peak of our special Art Hop programming:
While you are there, enjoy the art, food and entertainment provided by our partners at RETN and VCAM. This is fun for the whole family!

We are recruiting our next group of WBTV-LP programmers right now! Make your dream of doing that rad music show or producing that podcast or hosting that live talk show a reality with us.
We train you in three, 2-hour sessions over the course of a few weeks. You get hands on studio training too.
And then you join our new summer schedule in July, which will align with our going LIVE on the air at 99.3 FM later this summer.
This is THE time to get in the WBTV-LP schedule before we totally fill up (trust us, this is going to be a super popular station to be part of).
We look forward to meeting you and thank you for spreading the word!
