The WNET Group acquired WPPB 88.3 FM, the only NPR station based on Long Island, changing its call letters to WLIW-FM. The acquisition allowed WNET to better serve its community and increase engagement.
The 36 local and national programs being broadcast on WLIW-FM include The Heart of the East End, The Afternoon Ramble and All Things Considered.
Press coverage from Dan’s Papers, The East Hampton Star, Express News Group, Hamptons.com, Long Island Business News and Newsday all reported positively on the new venture.
We are so thrilled with your new WLIW programming as we have been enthusiastic listeners for eons with PPB for several years… We are thrilled, too, that your ‘waves’ reach us on the southeastern coast of Connecticut and continues to bring us joy, curiosity, humor, insight, [and] broader understanding of our political and social climate!– Anonymous Viewer
