The new low-power FM radio station approved for New Haven could be on the air by Jan. 31 and will focus on news, events and religious programs of interest to New Haven residents.

“We are going to be driven by what the listener likes,” said Bob Nelson, who organized the application for the station license in partnership with Associated Churches of Fort Wayne and Allen County.

Nelson provided information about WHNH, 101.3-FM, during a news conference Monday at the downtown Allen County Public Library. At the same event, Erik Mollberg, assistant manager of the library’s Access Fort Wayne public-access cable television center, also spoke about plans for the low-power FM radio station, WELT, 95.7-FM, granted to the library system.

Along with those two stations, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently also approved a low-power FM radio station license at 94.5-FM for Harvest Christian Fellowship Church in Leo-Cedarville. Church representatives didn’t attend the news conference and could not be reached by phone Friday or Monday.
