WVPE Announces Programming Changes Are Now In Effect

Sep 1, 2020

A new program lineup on 88.1 WVPE and on WVPE NEWS2 went into effect September 5th. 

(You can see the changes highlighted below.)  

Some of the biggest changes weekday listeners may notice on 88.1 WVPE, will be that we are bringing back the second hour of Here & Now from 1-2pm and swapping out the program that had been in that time slot, All IN, to move it to WVPE NEWS2 at 1pm. You will also be able to hear a recorded version of All IN at 7pm on our main channel, 88.1 WVPE. That will push our current weekday evening lineup back one hour, with q from the CBC now starting at 8pm Monday through Friday.

On the weekends, you'll notice changes to 88.1 WVPE's lineup with The Splendid Table moving to Sunday mornings at 10am followed by the Mountain Stage from 11am-1pm. WVPE's Karl Smith is moving his jazz show, J:Cubed, to Saturday evenings at 7 to complement our other jazz programming that will follow on Saturday nights. And you can join us on The Back Porch a little earlier on Sundays. WVPE's Al Kniola and Norm Mast are shifting their program to 6-10pm. 

As a reminder, another listening option is available via the WVPE app where many programs are available "On Demand" for you to listen to when it works best for your schedule.
