Classical South Florida announced today that it will be expanding its public radio service in Palm Beach County. On September 14, 2011, WPBI 90.7 FM will begin broadcasting an all-classical music format, with NPR News headlines heard during morning and evening drive times. News fans in the region will hear a new public radio service at a different frequency—101.9 FM—and via HD Radio on 90.7 HD2. It looks like there will be competition for WLRN’s news junkies in North Broward.
“We know that public radio fans are devoted and curious, and that they appreciate arts and cultural programming,” said Doug Evans, CSF pres & GM. “By creating a brand new, 24/7 public radio news service and an all-classical music service, we’re giving listeners more choices and a greater variety of programming. We’re proud to make this additional contribution to the cultural fabric of our community.”
