Based at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School...
WYOB-LP is a not-for-profit radio station with a curriculum designed to provide professional radio skills to high school students by seasoned broadcasting professionals.
With a predominantly reggae music format, WYOB-LP at 105.5 FM is a non-commercial but professionally produced radio station at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School teaching students radio station fundamentals. Formed initially as a club that met Tuesdays and Saturdays in Studio 214 during the 2015-2016 school year it is expected that Radio will become a full time Career Technical Educational (CTE) course. For the 2016-2017 school year it will be mandatory for ninth graders to cycle through the CTE programs to determine interests and WYOB will be a part of that program. Skip Finley will lead several classes and Bill Narkiewicz others. Student leaders from the first year will be assigned to the classes as “Department Heads” and act as ambassadors for the incoming students.
WYOB-LP is on the air 365/24/7—just like commercial stations—and students are encouraged to participate year round as they learn all aspects of the radio industry. To accomplish this the “Department Heads” are provided with paid internships.
