WRCH is a radio station in the Hartford, Connecticut, United States area and broadcasts at 100.5 FM with an Adult Contemporary format. Its transmitter is located on Rattlesnake Mountain on the WTIC-TV tower, and a backup transmitter in "Radio Park" behind the Connecticut School of Broadcasting (its former studio location), and studios and offices located at 10 Executive Drive in Farmington, Connecticut. Its "Pillow Talk" program on weekday evenings features a Soft Adult Contemporary format.
On February 2, 2017, CBS Radio announced it would merge with Entercom. The merger was approved on November 9, 2017, and was consummated on the 17th. The only current effect from the merger was the switch of the HD3 simulcast from the now-Beasley controlled WBZ-FM (which moved to WRCH-HD3 from the HD3 sub-channel of WTIC-FM in 2016) to Entercom's competitor WEEI-FM.
