WTBR goes silent on Monday, temporarily.
The Taconic High School radio station is being taken over by Pittsfield Community Television but will return once a new studio is build and licensure is issued later this year.
The School Department is signing off on WTBR in June. But, Pittsfield Community Television will be signing on in the fall.
The School Committee approved an agreement Thursday which gives management of the Brave FM to PCTV. The organization will be transforming the station into a hybrid model of a community and educational medium and bolstering the station's offerings.
PCTV, WTBR, is a match made in heaven, according to School Committee Chairwoman Katherine Yon.
"We've been trying to get out of the radio business for quite some time," Yon said. "The collaboration seems to be the proverbial match made in heaven."
Pittsfield Community Television wants to turn WTBR into a community radio station.
The local public access television organization has put forth a proposal to take over management of The Brave FM. The radio station is set to take on a new life with the demolition of the current school. For nearly four years school officials have been looking for partners to develop a plan to keep the station alive.
