*WBCA 102.9 FM History*
In 2013, for the first time in ten years, the FCC opened applications 
for local Low-Power FM (LPFM) Radio licenses to community and civic 
organizations. The City of Boston applied for the license to provide a 
source of news and information to Boston residents, including public 
safety programming and any local or regional emergency information. 
Boston was granted a license-to-construct permit in 2015 for a new FCC 
Low Power FM (LPFM) radio station.Because multiple qualified community 
organizations applied for the one available LPFM license for the Boston 
market, a sharing agreement was created under FCC guidelines.

The signal is shared with Lasell College from 10:00am to 6:00pm and 
Global Ministries from 2:00am to 10:00am.
WBCA 102.9 FM is operated and programmed by Boston Neighborhood Network 
(BNN) from 6:00pm to 2:00am.
