On its second attempt, CHICAGO PUBLIC RADIO (THE WBEZ ALLIANCE, INC.) has received local approval for a new tower for its noncommercial WBEW (VOCALO RADIO)/CHESTERTON, IN.
The CHESTERTON TRIBUNE reports that the company's proposal for a 595 foot tower east of State Road 49 was approved by a 7-0 vote of the PORTER Plan Commission WEDNESDAY night. The station's previous application for a 499 foot tower was rejected by the PORTER Board of Zoning Appeals in 2006.
