WZRD is back on the air!

Posted by Mitchell - February 18, 2005 (entry 281)

WZRD 88.3 FM, the radio station of Northeastern Illinois University, which airs a number of progressive radio programs (including Democracy Now! twice daily).

As noted on this website, WZRD had been off the air for a number of weeks because of licensing problems with the FCC. However, at about 6pm this evening (February 18), the FCC granted WZRD a temporary authorization to resume broadcasting. Hopefully, WZRD will continue the process to file for a full license during the term of this temporary authorization (which is six months).

Good news: WZRD is back on the air.
