There’s more options for public radio fans near Oswego; WRVO recently started broadcasting in high-definition, allowing the addition of a subchannel called WRVO-2. Managers say the second channel is only carried by its Oswego signal now, but there are plans to expand the HD network to some of WRVO’s sister stations throughout the region.
General Manager John Krauss recently told the Syracuse Post-Standard a $196,000 grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is covering the cost of the upgrades. Krauss explains the new channel allows WRVO to carry more programming that didn’t fit in the schedule.
If you’re not in range of WRVO-2 (or if you don’t have an HD Radio), the station is streaming online.
WRVO’s website says there are plans to bring the HD channels to sister stations in this order: “WRVD 90.3 in Syracuse, then WRVN 91.9 in Utica, and WRVJ 91.7 in Watertown.” Although the Post-Standard article said these upgrades are included in the CPB’s $196,000 grant, the WRVO website says the station is “still seeking funding for these capital upgrades.”
