WCSI expanding to FM signal

White River Broadcasting’s WCSI, now has a second home on the FM dial.

You can now listen to the station’s news talk station programming on 98 1 FM as well as the decades-long location on 1010 AM.  The  new FM translator is broadcasting from the tower at White River Broadcasting’s offices at  National Road and Washington Street in Columbus.

Company officials say that the change will allow listeners to hear WCSI all across Columbus and Bartholomew County, 24 hours a day. Previously, 1010 AM has had to power down at night under FCC rules.

White River Broadcasting operates four stations in south-central Indiana: WCSI, 106.1 The River, Indiana Country 101.5 WKKG and WINN 104.9.
