WZRD (88.3 FM) is back on the air!
WZRD 88.3 FM is the radio station of Northeastern Illinois University, which airs a number of progressive radio programs (including Democracy Now! twice daily). WZRD had been off the air for a number of weeks because of licensing problems with the FCC. However, at about 6pm this evening (February 18), the FCC granted WZRD a temporary authorization to resume broadcasting. Hopefully, WZRD will continue the process to file for a full license during the term of this temporary authorization (which is six months).
