WGTE FM 91 in Toledo began broadcasting May 2, 1976. For the first time classical music and national public radio’s All Things Considered became available to a daily radio audience in Northwest Ohio. Early broadcasts included live concerts by the Toledo Symphony, the first metropolitan opera stereo television simulcasts with WGTE TV and weekly coverage of Toledo City Council. Twenty-four hour broadcasting originated in 1984 with Music Through the Night and Jazz After Hours.
The station extended its broadcast reach with the construction of satellite stations WGLE Lima in 1981, WGBE Bryan in 1996 and WGDE Defiance in 1999. Twenty six counties in Ohio and Michigan are served by the four stations.
Today FM 91 continues its program service of NPR news and information, classical, jazz, folk and eclectic music. Programs from Public Radio International include Marketplace and weekend entertainment and variety shows.
