WCTL/Erie’s sister station (AM 1530) has started program teasing with its new call letters, WZTE. WZTE is now known as Freedom 1530, featuring a unique reading of the United States Constitution, mixed with patriotic band music. The station is featuring two local students voicing WZTE’s continuous reading of the entire U.S. Constitution, with amendments included and changes noted. “We are so excited to present these young voices, reading this very old document,” station manager Joel Natalie stated. “We are calling it, ‘Madison’s and Hamilton’s Greatest Hits.’”
Freedom 1530 is designed to educate and remind listeners of the real text of the Constitution, illuminating each citizen’s rights and responsibilities. Other spoken-voice features anticipated in December 2018 include historical Christmas messages from former US Presidents.
