RCB to meet with Public Broadcasting Atlanta

To continue its review of WREK, the Georgia Tech Radio Communications Board (RCB) will meet with representatives of Public Broadcasting Atlanta (PBA) on Thursday, March 29 to discuss PBA's proposal for a "partnership" with WREK. PBA operates WABE-FM, the Atlanta NPR affiliate.

According to news reports last fall, PBA's initial proposal was to "lease" WREK's main signal 14 hours a day, from 5AM-7PM for NPR and other programming.

Ah, yes -- the "let's make an offer to 'lease' WREK so that GPB doesn't get on the air in Atlanta" proposal.

i'm curious if GPB & PBA have approached RAS, RFG, CLK, et al, about a similar deal.

I don't think they've approached any of the other college stations. GPB and PBA are making a pitch because Tech's administration seems receptive to such a proposal.
