The NEW YORK TIMES reports that COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY noncommercial WKCR/NEW YORK is considering placing its antenna atop the rising tower on the site of the WORLD TRADE CENTER. WKCR was one of the stations to lose its transmitter in the 9/11 tragedy, and has transmitted from 4 Times Square since 2003.
"We've certainly not yet sealed the deal, nor even seen the terms of moving there," said Dir./Broadcasting BENJAMIN YOUNG, "but it is a hope and an ambition that we might make that our new main transmitter site when it launches in the coming years. It will be a welcome return."
