WHCP Community Radio cuts ribbon

MD-WHCP ribbon cutting
WHCP, the new community-supported FM radio station in Cambridge celebrated a ribbon cutting with the Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, June 4. WHCP is the brainchild of Cambridge resident Mike Starling, who has spent his life in radio, and his working career as an engineer for National Public Radio.

“Our goal is to bring true community radio to Cambridge,” said Mr. Starling. “Music shows of every stripe, local news, weather and talk shows, all geared to inform and entertain the residents of this fair city and beyond.”

WHCP operates under an FCC “LP” license, a special low-power classification saved for non-profit, non-commercial radio stations, which will limit the signal to an approximate 10 mile radius from downtown Cambridge.

The official on-air date for WHCP is July 4, when the station plans to celebrate with a block party on Poplar Street in Cambridge with musical groups, food and games, and everyone is invited!
