Radio joins the digital revolution!
WFYI radio programming is now available
in crystal clear digital quality.
Like its sister station TV 20, WFYI
radio has made the transition to
digital broadcasting, allowing it
to simulcast programming in digital
for those with HD radios. This new
digital technology also allows WFYI
to multi-cast more than one programming
stream, making the most of the 90.1
spot on the FM dial.
CD Quality Sound
This new HD radio technology improves
the audio quality of WFYI’s transmissions.
Talk programs never sounded so clear,
and The Classical Connection with Michael
Toulouse and broadcasts of the Indianapolis
Symphony Orchestra never sounded so glorious.
Even The Blues House Party sounds “bluesier” some
Just as exciting is the development
of digital multi-casting. The new HD
technology allows WFYI to deliver more
than one service simultaneously. WFYI
engineers have the second channel up
and running now and have asked the
FCC for permission to begin a third.
In addition to more programming, HD
radio technology will eventually allow
to display song title, artist and even
weather and traffic information on
the radio display.
WFYI HD-1 is an improved digital
simulcast of WFYI’s regular
WFYI HD-2 is carrying XPoNential

breaks and is very recognizable to
public radio audiences. Learn More...
