Major Renovation for WCVE Public Radio Studio; Listeners Don't Miss a Beat
WCVE Public Radio’s main studio is going through a much-needed renovation, and Music Director Bobbie Barajas is chronicling its transformation. The studio is on target to be completed by early September. We are broadcasting out of our temporary studio, without listeners missing of a minute of programming.
WCVE Public Radio VP/General Manager Bill Miller was asked about the cost of this upgrade. “We’ve budgeted $25,000 for the project. It’s considered a capital investment, with a useful life of 5 to 10 years or longer, and we will be using funds apart from our regular operating budget to do the work. That means we won’t have to divert any resources from program acquisition or production to build the studio. Also, some of the local vendors working on the studio are supporters of WCVE Public Radio and they have offered discounts to help contain costs.”
