EEO Reports and Public File
WVBI is an LPFM station and, as such, is not required to file EEO reports with the FCC and is not required to maintain a public inspection file. If you have questions or concerns about WVBI’s selection of volunteers, programming or other operations, we invite you to discuss them with us. You can start the conversation by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On June 1, 2020, PABI filed an application with the FCC to renew WVBI’s operating license for an eight year term beginning October 1, 2020. The FCC granted our renewal application on September 16, 2020. Our next renewal application will be due on June 1, 2028.

Application for New Non-commercial Educational Station
On November 9, 2021, PABI, the licensee of WVBI, filed an application with the FCC for a new non-commercial educational FM radio station on 91.9 MHz to serve Beaver Island, Michigan. If the application is granted, PABI plans to construct the station and then move WVBI’s programming and call letters to that station as well as to divest itself of its current authorization to operate on 100.1 MHz. More information about the application (including public file materials) is available here.
