WCEB (91.9 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Variety format. Licensed to Corning, New York, USA. The station is currently owned by Corning Community College.[1] Because of the location of its tower, the station can be heard through much of the Corning, New York area despite its low power.

History

The station began broadcasting a mix of news and rock music from a trailer on the Corning Community College campus on April 1, 1974, with an 18 hour broadcast day. It carried news broadcasts from the UPI Radio network on the hour, and local news on the half hour. It was programmed and staffed completely by students, and was managed by sophomore student David Game, who was the station's first general manager. WCEB grew from the school's Radio Club, which had broadcast a closed-circuit signal to the student union for a number of years while exploring the feasibility of a broadcast station. Following Game's election as president of the Radio Club in 1973, funding was secured from the school, and Game supervised the project to obtain the necessary FCC license. He selected the station's call letters, which stand for Corning Educational Broadcasting. The station's first broadcast was simulcast on local commercial station WCBA. WCEB continues in limited operation as of 2011.
