History[edit]

Logo as a classical station

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 classic hits 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]
