Quincy Public Radio makes debut as part of St. Louis Public Radio network
The University of Missouri–St. Louis completed its purchase of WQUB (90.3 FM) from Quincy (Ill.) University on July 26. That same night, WQUB became part of the St. Louis Public Radio network and began broadcasting under its new moniker, Quincy Public Radio | 90.3 WQUB.
Quincy Public Radio listeners will be able to continue enjoying signature public radio programs such as “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “The Diane Rehm Show,” “Fresh Air” and “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” Listeners also will now be able to hear other signature programs such as “Talk of the Nation,” “Marketplace,” “Car Talk,” “This American Life” and “A Prairie Home Companion.”
“This move will ensure that public radio will remain a valuable asset in the Quincy region now and in the future,” said Tim Eby, general manager of St. Louis Public Radio | 90.7 KWMU and Quincy Public Radio. “On the air and in the community, we are committed to providing Quincy Public Radio listeners the best service possible.”
Eby further discussed Quincy Public Radio on the July 30 episode of “St. Louis on the Air,” a program on St. Louis Public Radio.
