The University of Michigan’s Public News/Talk “Michigan Radio” has expanded its coverage with the addition of a simulcast on 91.3 WRSX Port Huron.
The Port Huron Times Herald reports that RESA intends to have its digital media technology students become on-air hosts in the future with the Michigan Radio programming filling out its schedule. Michigan Radio is based at 91.7 WUOM Ann Arbor and is also heard on 91.1 WFUM Flint and 104.1 WVGR Grand Rapids.
Michigan Radio can now be heard in the Port Huron region on 91.3 FM, WRSX.
In a unique partnership with the St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA), which completed its acquisition of WRSX in July 2018, Michigan Radio is the exclusive provider of public radio programming for the Port Huron station, with a 24/7/365 simulcast originating from WUOM studios in Ann Arbor.
The sign on of the 91.3 FM signal with the new call sign WRSX began at noon today, Tuesday, September 4, 2018, with the launch of Michigan Radio as the primary programming source, providing NPR news and information and Michigan Radio’s roster of local, statewide journalism content, led by “Stateside,” the station’s daily news program. In addition, local newscasts throughout the day are being broadcast live from the state’s largest public radio news staff.
