Southern’s radio station, Classical 90.5 WSMC, recently installed a new digital transmitter, replacing the station’s outdated analog equipment. This upgrade resolves broadcast issues that local listeners had experienced for a couple of months, returning the station to 100 percent power, and paving the way to digital broadcast capabilities.
“We are grateful to the generous listeners who made this improvement possible,” said Scott Kornblum, general manager of Classical 90.5 WSMC. “We could not have taken this step without their support!”
While the transmitter is a blessing to classical music lovers in the Tennessee Valley and Northwest Georgia, it also goes a long way toward broadening the reach of Classical 90.5’s sister station, Oasis 90.5 WSMC. Launched in 2014, Oasis uses internet streaming to offer Seventh-day Adventist programming — including sermons, inspirational Christian music, and children’s stories — that points adults and children to Christ’s redeeming love.
Currently an online-only broadcast, Oasis will expand to reach digital radios in cars and homes in most of Classical 90.5’s coverage area as well, once the station’s transition to digital equipment is complete. To learn more or to listen to the radio station, visit southern.edu/wsmc.
