What's that noise everytime a microphone is open?

May 22, 2017

If you hear something that sounds like construction noise whenever a Public Radio East announcer is speaking on air, that's exactly what it is. The second floor of Barker Hall on the campus of our licensee Craven Community College is undergoing renovations over the summer, with a lot of the work taking place right above our studios. The work should not interfere with our broadcast and the noise shouldn't overpower our announcers, but will likely be noticeable. The work is scheduled to be complete by the end of August.
