WRCT Virtual Calendar

April 5, 2020 // Events, News

Most live music events are cancelled during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But many artists are having live events on line!

The WRCT Exec board has just published the WRCT Virtual Calendar to help you keep track of live music events you can stream online from the safety of your own home!

Now more than ever, it’s critical to support the local artists in your community — and artists around the world, so please check out the WRCT Virtual Calendar!

If you have an online event, concert, or album release you’d like us to add, direct message us on Facebook or Instagram, or send email to pr@wrct.org.

WRCT joins you in supporting the music!


Coronavirus, CMU, & WRCT

March 15, 2020 // Events, General, News

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) has switched to distance/online instruction and implemented other policies to curtail the spread of this illness. WRCT will remain on the air, but we are making some changes to comply with CMU’s policies.

Official Information from CMU

Effects on WRCT programming and events

  • WRCT will remain on the air during the health emergency, but listeners will notice some changes to WRCT programming as the station joins the rest of CMU in responding to the crisis. Check the Schedule tab on our website for changes to our schedule. News will also be posted on our site’s home page and on the WRCT Facebook page.
  • WRCT-affiliated public events (e.g., DJing In The Weeds at the Ace Hotel) are cancelled until further notice.
  • Training for those interested in joining WRCT is canceled until further notice. For more information, contact the WRCT training director (training@wrct.org).

All the station staff, both students and community volunteers, thank you for your support of WRCT.
