Licensed by the Federal Communications Commission, WKRB is a Class-D Noncommercial, Educational Radio Station broadcasting at 10-watts, in stereo on 90.3MHz. WKRB has been broadcasting since May 1978, initially on the frequency 90.9 FM and moved to the frequency 90.3 FM in April 2006. WKRB has the potential to reach nearly 1.5 million people throughout the southern portion of Brooklyn with our 10-watt terrestrial signal. WKRB also streams and can be heard on all mobile devices. The signal is also carried on Brooklyn Community Access Television on a rotating schedule, for four hours each day.
Throughout the years, WKRB has carried a variety of formats including Rock, Disco, Hip-Hop, Top-40 and many others. From the mid-1980s through 1993, WKRB was known as B-91, the Rhythm of the City , and was one of the first stations in the New York area to popularize Dance music as a radio format (now known as CHR Rhythmic). Since then, WKRB has followed a variety of formats, in addition to numerous specialty programs. WKRB currently follows a CHR Rhythmic format throughout the day, and specialty shows evenings and weekends.
Countless graduates have launched very successful broadcasting careers after working at WKRB throughout their course of study at Kingsborough. The experience you can gain here is invaluable if you are planning for a career in the media. WKRB also welcomes students of any major, simply looking to participate here as an extracurricular club activity. Many of our most involved students are not broadcast majors and have equal access to our facilities and operational positions within the organization.
Our mission is to reach as many people as possible with programming that is creative, professional and diverse while serving as training for students seeking to make broadcasting their career.
