After spending 14 years in what was meant to be a “temporary location” on East Hill Plaza, Cornell’s student-run radio station WVBR has made the shift to a brand-new studio location in Collegetown — officially opening for business during a ribbon-cutting event Saturday.

“We’ve been operating a bare-bones radio station for the past 14 years,” said Drew Endick ’14, general manager of WVBR. “[The new space] features the amenities of any major corporate radio station, but it has the appeal, space and ability to innovate that any college radio station has. This will be a spectacular place to create content and to learn.”
