Parkersburg Radio Tower Hit By Lightning

Cover Map for WVPB Radio

WVPG 90.3 FM in Parkersburg sustained major damage from a lightning storm the weekend of August 13.

The facility requires major repairs and will be off the air for an extended period, possibly three weeks. We will update this post as new information becomes available.

Until repairs are made, here are several ways listeners in the Parkersburg area can hear WVPB Radio:

  • Go to wvpublic.org and click the Listen Live button
  • Install the WVPB App on your Apple or Android Smartphone
  • Try listening to one of our other local stations:

88.9 WVPW Weston
89.9 WVWV Huntington

88.5 WVPB Charleston

89.9 WVNP Wheeling

We are conducting our repairs as quickly as possible, including the hope for a low power signal temporarily. We apologize with the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.
