WSNC Local Programming

At long last, WSNC has a new transmitter. 

We have been broadcasting at reduced power on a rented transmitter for months. Back during the summer, our old transmitter took an unannounced early retirement leaving us scrambling to stay on the air.

As soon as the new equipment can be properly installed, we will be available at higher quality over a larger listening area.

Professional broadcast equipment is not cheap, but it should last for decades.

Help us financially by becoming a sustaining member today.

Enjoy a performance by the United States Navy Band Jazz Commodores, Sunday, November 12, 8 p.m. at the UNC School of the Arts Stevens Center. The public is invited, but reservations are requested by calling the box office at 336-721-1945.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump debate Wednesday night for the last time before Election Day in Las Vegas.

Here's what else you need to know to get caught up ahead of the third and final debate:

A stone tool found in the sand has always been considered the handiwork of early humans and their ancestors. But a remarkable discovery in a Brazilian forest suggests that might not be so.

A cease-fire brokered by the United Nations took hold in Yemen on Wednesday night. The U.N. hopes the break will allow humanitarian workers to deliver badly needed aid and pave the way for peace talks.

U.N. Special Envoy for Yemen Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed announced the deal on Monday. A statement from the U.N. said Ahmed "has received assurances from all Yemeni parties" that they will abide by the Cessation of Hostilities that he negotiated in April.

Who will be the World Health Organization's next director-general? In September, the U.N. agency announced the six nominees, four men and two women, ranging from a cardiologist from Pakistan to a former punk rocker from Hungary. Over the next few months, WHO member-states will whittle down the list to one final candidate, who will succeed the current director, Dr.

It has been a crazy few days for Ryan Griffin, the guy behind the Read-to-a-Barber program we wrote about on the NPR Ed blog last week. He says the phone at The Fuller Cut in Ypsilanti, Mich., has been ringing nonstop since the story ran.

Maybe you did. Maybe you didn't.

Lastly, in the spring of this year we went to Portland, Ore. And instead of talking to some bearded hipster, we talked to a straight-laced guy from Wisconsin, who also happened to be a star player for the Portland Trailblazers.
