London-based WRN has partnered with Seattle community radio station KBCS FM to re-broadcast its 24 hour news and current affairs channel. The station will now have access to programming from international broadcasters such as KBS in Korea, RCI in Canada and RNWI in the Netherlands.
KBCS has already had a great listener response to its new programming. Peter Graff, Programme Director at KBCS, says “WRN is a great fit for our information-hungry listeners, providing global news and perspectives that push beyond what’s on the radio dial here in Seattle.”
Marina Lois, Product Development & Distribution Manager at WRN, says “KBCS is a leading speech radio station in the Washington state market and WRN is very happy to be able to provide them with news and current affairs programming from its North American network.”
Set up in 1973, KCBS 91.3 FM is staffed entirely by volunteer presenters and has a public service remit to serve the communities of Seattle.
