WFCL (91.1 FM) is a non-commercial radio station in Nashville, Tennessee. The station is owned by Nashville Public Radio, the licensee of Nashville's main NPR member stations, WPLN-FM-AM.

History[edit]

From 1971 to June 7, 2011, the 91.1 FM frequency was occupied by Vanderbilt University's WRVU, a college radio station. The University's student communications division made the decision to sell the station, despite public outcry, because of declining student participation and the desire to establish an endowment fund for VU's other student media. Nashville Public Radio, which had long been exploring the possibility of making WPLN-FM a full-time news and talk outlet, decided to purchase WRVU for $3.35 million in order to air the station's classical music library. The FCC approved the purchase and license transfer on March 18, 2014, and the transaction was consummated on May 22, 2014.
