Community Broadcast Center

In early 2006, WYEP (our sister station) began broadcasting from the new Community Broadcast Center, located in Bedford Square on Pittsburgh’s historic South Side.

In September 2006, the Community Broadcast Center received a LEED-NC Silver rating, making it environmentally friendly as well as “the first green radio station in the nation.”
