Worcester Radio Part 1

Starting a tour of the radio stations that supply the City of Worcester with news and entertainment. I grew up when radio was king, the oldies of today were the popular hits of the day. As a teenager I would wander in and out of the stations when most were in the downtown area. WORC, WAAB, WAAF, and WNEB were the top of the heap. Never got in to WTAG back then, but thanks to Chris Sinacola of the Telegram and Gazette, I was able to look at what was once the studios on Franklin Street.

Recently the Worcester Telegram and Gazette announced that the building they have been in since 1920 has been sold. They plan to stay somewhere downtown, but here is a look at the Newsroom where many reporters worked to give Worcester the latest news. The end of another era of the City.
