S. version of Classic FM, the classical music satellite service of SW Networks.


WCN programming is carried on Cape Cod Broadcasting's WFCC-FM, licensed to Chatham, Massachusetts. WFCC is the WCN flagship station. The service is also syndicated, with the following affiliates:


Current hosts on the World Classical Network include Mark Calder (mornings), Don Spencer (afternoons) and Larry King (evenings). Longtime classical announcer Steve Murphy joined the WCN as morning host on September 16, 2008.
