For the Love of Radio
As Pittsfield prepared to open a brand-new Taconic High School in 2018, there was a very real possibility that listeners in our community would lose WTBR-FM. The station, in operation at the school since the 1970s, would go off the air permanently without a community partner to step in to rebuild, manage and operate it.
Enter Pittsfield Community Television– in partnership with the Pittsfield Public Schools, WTBR has re-emerged as a community media powerhouse. Preserving the equipment and massive vinyl collection of the Taconic landmark, the new WTBR combines the Classic Rock that listeners have come to love with a diverse range of locally-originated programming produced by members of our Central Berkshire community!
Today, WTBR is called Pittsfield Community Radio, and continues to serve our community. With new studios and facilities at PCTV, the station continues to generate local content for listeners in our area. We welcome you to visit our beautiful WTBR-FM radio production studio at 4 Federico Drive, Suite 2 (just off of outer East Street) in Pittsfield!
