What does WRTE mean?
- WRTE is an American radio station broadcasting a Public media format. It is licensed to Chicago, Illinois, USA, and serves the city of Chicago. The station is owned by Chicago Public Media. WRTE signed on as WCYC with licensee, Boys and girls Club of Chicago on 90.5FM. The Boys Club sold the radio station to the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum in 1997, renaming the station WRTE. In the final years of the National Museum of Mexican Art's ownership of the station, it underwent many hardships, including erratic staff changes, fundraising challenges and more. As of Spring 2011 the frequency was put up for sale and on June 22, 2012 it was announced that Chicago Public Media had purchased WRTE FM. On December 31, 2012 Chicago Public Media took control of the purchase of the frequency and began to simulcast its Vocalo programming broadcast from Navy Pier in downtown Chicago. Vocalo will eventually open a community bureau in Little Village/Pilsen where it can conduct community training and remote broadcast.
