Familiar Faces Move Into New Roles At WCBU, WGLT

Sep 27, 2020

Listeners and readers will hear and see several familiar voices and names popping up in new places on WGLT and WCBU.

WGLT Program Director Mike McCurdy will retire at the end of the month after nearly 40 years in broadcasting, 30 of them at WGLT.

Today is $5 Friday at WGLT. That means we’re asking those who’ve never contributed before to set up a $5-a-month commitment to support their public radio station.

WGLT's broadcast signal will be impacted by scheduled maintenance at our main transmitter site on Tuesday, July 23, 2019.

WGLT 89.1 FM will switch to its backup transmitter between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday. During that time, the quality and reach of our signal may be reduced. Regular signal strength is expected to return Tuesday evening.

If you have questions, please contact us at news@wglt.org.

Illinois State University and Bradley University have signed an agreement in which WGLT-FM will assume operations of WCBU-FM in Peoria starting June 1.

WGLT has cultivated a strong culture of public service excellence for more than 53 years. New in 2018, WGLT launched a Hall of Fame to recognize those who have made contributions integral to WGLT’s ongoing excellence in public service to the Illinois State University, Bloomington-Normal, and McLean County communities. Selections will be announced annually.

The feedback for 1A (which replaced On Point weekdays from 9-11 a.m.) has been great. Thank you to the listeners who got in contact to let us know what they thought of the change. We hope we'll also hear postive things about the changes that will now bring back On Point back to the GLT schedule weekday evenings.
