WUTC Radio to Merge With WTCI TV?


Handshake2Chattanooga (WDEF) UTC is looking to combine their public radio station with the local PBS affiliate, according to Current.org. The move could include the two entities sharing a single facility. With the radio station already undergoing budget cuts, UTC is trying to relieve it of about $5.8 million dollars of cuts. However, WTCI GM Paul Grove is skeptical, saying his organization doesn’t have the money to subsidize the radio station. Still, UTC has formed a task force to explore the possibilities.
