When the final stages of the new Taconic High School building were being completed, it looked like a beloved Pittsfield institution was destined to disappear – with no space to move the station into at the new school building, WTBR FM had a very really possibility of going dark for good.
Enter Pittsfield Community Television – in partnership with the Pittsfield Public Schools, what was once a student-focused radio station has been transformed into a community media powerhouse. Preserving the equipment and massive vinyl collection of the Taconic landmark, the new WTBR will combine the Classic Rock that listeners have come to love with a diverse range of locally-originated programming produced by radio volunteers!
In this way, PCTV and WTBR will be able to continue to serve our community, preserving this beloved station and ensuring that now anyone can produce a professional sounding radio program.
