Wednesday, Feb 17, 2016

Low-power community radio station WELT, 95.7-FM, officially began broadcasting with a ribbon cutting at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The station, whose program hosts all are volunteers, is based in the Access Fort Wayne studios at the downtown Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza. This is the only public library in the country with a license to operate a low-power FM radio station.

WELT, which stands for We Encourage Local Talent, will broadcast local programming 24 hours a day via a transmission tower at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, which is a partner in the station, Erik Mollberg, station manager, said previously. Radio shows will highlight a wide range of music, talk topics and some sports.

The station's 100-watt signal is expected to reach most of Allen County, Mollberg said.
