New Hampshire Public Radio is purchasing WCNH-FM, a 250-watt classical station that has been broadcasting from the state network’s Concord studios for two years.
WCNH started as a low-power FM airing classical music in 2000, and later upgraded to a full-power FM. In 2012, WCNH moved into NHPR’s studios, and now they are asking NHPR to take over the station. Scott McPherson, on NHPR says
we recognized an opportunity to continue to operate Classical New Hampshire on a frequency in the Concord market.” NHPR expects a decision from the FCC by this fall on the $75,000 transaction.
