The power boost will triple the station's broadcast area and will raise its potential audience from 1.5 million to 4.5 million people. The shift will cost WXPN $340,000 and was funded by a combination of a private donation from a University trustee, a commitment of the 1987 University capital fund and grants from local and federal agencies, WXPN Chief Engineer Scott Fowler said last month. The radio station features a mix of alternative music and issue-oriented programs targeted to a college-educated audience in Philadelphia and some suburban communities. -- Gayle MeyersComments powered by Disqus
