Library’s Radio Station Now Streaming Live!


Memphis Public Libraries’ radio station, WYPL FM 89.3, is now streaming live, making “Memphis Music” and other great programs available to listeners worldwide.

“This means that anyone can listen to us through their PCs, laptops, tablets, or smart phones. Now WYPL FM 89.3 is available to anyone with internet access,” explained Station Manager Tommy Warren.

The Library’s radio and TV stations, both housed at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library (3030 Poplar Ave.), have seen recent upgrades in technology, moving from standard to industry standard – high definition.

“These upgrades provide us with the opportunity to be seen and heard by so many more people,” Warren said about the station’s increased visibility. “Now, we can spread the word a lot farther about some really important information and services.”

Along with the station’s new facelift also came some other changes that appeal to a broader audience. “We have really expanded our Memphis Music programs. We air music from the Library’s Memphis Music collections seven nights a week from 6:30 p.m. to midnight, and we have also begun reading family-friendly books every morning from 7 a.m. – 8 a.m. Lastly, weekday shows will target teens, while weekend book readings will be geared toward younger children,” Warren commented.

To tune in to these and other great programs, listeners can simply click here or select the “WYPL” dropdown menu on the Library’s homepage (www.memphislibrary.org) and click “FM 89.3 Listen Online Now!”
