After 35 years on the air, Olivet College’s radio station, WOCR, has undergone a major transformation in 2010. WOCR has moved from 89.7 on the FM dial to a new frequency – 89.1 and now broadcasts as WOCR, 89-1, The One.
The move to a new frequency will allow WOCR to increase its operating power to 500 watts and significantly expand its over-the-air coverage area. The station has also purchased a new 500 watt transmitter that replaces some equipment that has been in use since WOCR first went on the air.
WOCR – The One broadcasts live from the Convergent Media Center on the campus of Olivet College in Olivet, Michigan and is an FCC-licensed non-commercial educational radio station operated by students at Olivet College. WOCR also streams all of its programming live on the Internet at www.wocrfm.com. No matter where you are, you can listen to WOCR for music, weather, news, information on events taking place on campus, and sports coverage and commentary.
WOCR is on the air Monday through Friday beginning at 7:30 a.m. and produces live coverage of Olivet Comets sports during football and basketball seasons. In the fall of 2010, WOCR also created a new sports program, “Football Friday,” featuring live coverage of a Friday night high school game of the week.
