BRADLEY UNIVERSITY noncommercial Classical-News-Talk WCBU/PEORIA, IL is dropping all Classical programming from its main channel and taking the station all News-Talk. Classical programming will move to the station's HD2 and online channel, WCBU2, while some local music programs will air on both channels. The changes are scheduled to take place on MARCH 7th.
"We believe this is a win-win for our current listeners," said WCBU Executive Director THOMAS HUNT. "It also gives us an opportunity to increase membership and do an even better job of meeting the needs of our audience."
"We have heard from many members who have asked for additional news and information programming," added SHELLI DANKOFF, President of the WCBU Advisory Board. "We'll be able to give listeners even more opportunities to hear different viewpoints and to learn and discover new things. We are excited about what this means for our listeners."
