Interlochen Public Radio is pleased to announce that listeners can now tune in to Classical IPR at WSRJ 105.5 FM. We are glad to bring back into many homes and cars the sounds that so many listeners find synonymous with life in northern Michigan.
We are broadcasting from WSRJ 105.5 FM as a temporary solution as we await weather conditions that will allow the repair of WIAA 88.7 FM. While we recognize that this additional broadcast will not restore service for all WIAA 88.7 FM listeners, it will allow most people in the Grand Traverse region to tune in to Classical IPR.
We are still planning to fix WIAA 88.7 FM as soon as possible, but ice on the tower continues to pose a safety risk for our crew. We are sorry for the problem which was entirely unexpected at a site we rebuilt just two years ago. (This issue does not affect our other stations.)
We are grateful to Northern Radio of Michigan for making this temporary broadcast possible.
As always, listeners can tune in to Classical IPR online at interlochenpublicradio.org/listen-online. Listeners in the Traverse City area can also tune in to Classical IPR at 94.7 FM.
Peter Payette would be happy to speak with you about this matter and can be reached at 231.276.4446.
