WCVT (101.7 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a full-service adult contemporary format. It brands "101 The One." Licensed to Stowe, Vermont, USA, the station serves the Burlington-Plattsburgh area. It is owned by Radio Vermont Group, controlled by NASCAR broadcaster Ken Squier.[1] 101 The One is also broadcast on WEXP (FM) in Rutland, Vermont.

Programming[edit]

101 The One airs a variety of music programs that are produced by the station, and plays classic hits and album cuts from the 70s, 80s and early 90s. The station's morning show is called Wake Up 101 with J.D. Green. That is followed by Allentown with Frankie Allen, The Edge of Knight with Jim Knight, and Chill Out 101 with Mister Mellow. The One's weather comes from meteorologist Roger Hill, who is also the forecaster for WCVT's sister station, WDEV. 101 The One features news updates at 7:00 and 8:00 AM, as a part of the Radio Vermont News Network, which broadcasts for seven minutes on all Radio Vermont Group Stations (WCVT, WEXP (FM), WDEV, and WLVB). 101 The One's weekend programming consists of 101 Weekends with Matt Kelly, who plays music that is similar to what is heard on weekdays.

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WVMX on October 28, 1990. On July 2, 1997, the station changed its call sign to the current WCVT.[2] When the station's call sign changed, its format did as well, and it began airing classical music. In June 2014, Radio Vermont announced that WCVT would drop the classical format in July, citing the growth of the noncommercial VPR Classical network.[3] The station launched a full service adult contemporary music format branded as "101 The One" on July 1; the new format features what Ken Squier described as "a new adult service local to Vermont."[4]
