We offer programming 24 hours a day, 365 days a year that focuses on broadcasting content not available anywhere else, including local news and information from the Berkshire Eagle, Pittsfield Gazette, North Adams Transcript, SingerShoutOut!, local authors and others. We supplement these local news broadcasts with programming on health, literature, shopping circular bargains, community events and articles from national periodicals.
