WSTB (88.9 FM) – branded 88.9 The AlterNation – is a non-commercial educational alternative rock radio station licensed to Streetsboro, Ohio. Owned by the Streetsboro City School District, the station serves the Akron metro area. The WSTB studios are located at Streetsboro High School in Streetsboro, while the station transmitter is in nearby Kent on the campus of Kent State University. In addition to a standard analog transmission, WSTB is available online.
WSTB first began broadcasting in September 1973 at 91.5 FM. On July 11, 1995, the station began broadcasting at 88.9 FM; the move was made possible after WAPS/Akron moved from 89.1 to 91.3 FM. WSTB is fully supported by listeners.
WSTB airs alternative rock music throughout most of the week. The sole exception is Sunday, when the station airs a day-long block of oldies music; the station itself is effectively re-branded "The Sunday Oldies Jukebox".
