Description: WYCE (88.1 FM) is an American Community Radio station, broadcasting a Noncommercial, Triple A format. The station's music is programmed by volunteers, drawing from a diverse library of eclectic music, primarily folk, rock, blues, worldbeat and jazz music, with some emphasis on local musicians.Licensed to Wyoming, Michigan, it first began broadcasting in 1983 as an FM-based extension to a cable-based radio station that had been operating since 1978 on (then) GE Cablevision in the Wyoming and Kentwood areas. This station was licensed to Wyoming Community Education (the source of the station's call letters).In 1987, the Wyoming Board of Education, in response to concerns about the music their students were programming, willingly transferred the license and sold the assets to Grand Rapids Cable Access Center (who operated a cable channel known as GRTV), which was the forerunner to the Grand Rapids Community Media Center (GRCMC).For several years, a special committee of the GRCAC board known as the Friends of WYCE provided direction to the station staff and volunteers.In the mid 1990's, the studios were moved from the community education site in suburban Wyoming, joining other components of the GRCMC as they consolidated in renovated facilities on the second floor of the West Side Library, just west of downtown Grand Rapids.In the late 1990's the station got a new transmitter and tower, thereby increasing its signal strength and coverage. The tower is located on Woodward Ave SW, just south of 28th Street, in Wyoming, Michigan.In 2010 the station received clearance from the FCC to expand its coverage area and power output. WYCE currently serves listeners in much of the West Michigan area including Grand Rapids, Holland and Muskegon.
