As of 2012, WKCR is broadcasting in the radio format called HD— the expanded radio technology once known as Hybrid Digital. While we will continue analog broadcasts at 89.9 FM, and internet streaming of our signal, we will offer the same programming in a high-quality, static-free, digital version, accessible through HD radios and apps. The upgrade has been made possible through assistance with radio station WWFM, which will transmit a full schedule of classical music programs on “sister” station, 89.9 HD2.
