WETD 90.7 FM officially began streaming its broadcast signal online through its newly renovated website, www.wetd.fm, on Sept. 27 during the Alfred State Homecoming/Family Weekend celebration.
This means the radio station can now be heard around the world, allowing Alfred State’s prospective students, alumni, and community members 24/7 access to WETD’s broadcast signal online. WETD students and staff worked tirelessly to provide this historic moment and positive comments from Alfred State students and alumni, and community members have been pouring into the radio station as a result.
WETD Technical Adviser Dale Burns and WETD General Manager Logan Merrill, an information technology: web development major from Campbell, NY, were instrumental in this process, continuing the work done over the past 10 years by other Alfred State and WETD alumni and staff.
“I know that our listeners who are alumni have been asking for streaming for quite some time and as someone who has a passion for radio, a passion for what we’re doing here at WETD and at Alfred State, I think streaming is a huge step forward for us,” Merrill said. “It allows people outside of our coverage area to tune in and to stay updated with what’s happening around the campus and the community.”
