TT7 - NEW YORK TIMES RADIO STATION WQXR
Founded in 1936, WQXR was the first classical music radio station in the US. Owned and operated by the New York Times Company, its signal from the Empire State Building reaches 800,000 loyal listeners in all five NYC boroughs and four states, making it the most listened-to classical music station. Always at the cutting edge of technology, Major Edwin Armstrong conducted the first FM stereo tests on WQXR. WQXR-AM was the first AM stero station. WQXR's Internet broadcast circles the globe. How does one of the western hemisphere's foremost analog radio facilities survive in the digital world? Come and hear!
