89.1 WBOI will be undergoing tower maintenance Thursday afternoon, and as a result we will be broadcasting at reduced power.

The crew is expected to perform its work on the tower in the late morning and/or early afternoon hours, which could impact signal strength during our programs at that time. The power reduction should not last more than a few hours.

We sincerely apologize for any interruptions you may experience. We will keep you updated as we get more information from engineering. In the meantime, you can listen online at wboi.org or on the WBOI mobile app.
