The latest round of radio musical chairs will be wrapped up on Wednesday morning as WOSU launches Classical 101 on 101.1FM. Over the summer, CD101 announced that their station would be migrating to 102.5FM and have been dual-broadcasting on both stations ever since. The new WOSU station will broadcast all classical music in a noncommercial format.
“Classical music has had a long and loyal following in central Ohio, dating back to our founding in 1922,” said General Manager Tom Rieland in a press release. “We believe Classical 101 and its affiliated stations will strengthen the sustainability of all of the performing arts in the region and help develop a new listener base for classical music through broadcasts and online.
Additionally, WOSU will be changing the format of their 89.7FM station on January 6th to remove existing classical music programming and become an 24-hour news station. All WOSU radio stations can be streamed online at wosu.org.
