WFAE HD1 is WFAE's flagship broadcast, which includes a wide range of programs from NPR, the BBC and Public Radio International as well as local news and talk shows about issues that are important to the community. WFAE is a National Public Radio station in Charlotte, North Carolina broadcasting at 90.7 MHz on the FM dial. The station went on the air on June 29, 1981 on 90.9 FM as a service of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, taking over from a student-run carrier current station that had begun operation in the mid 1970s. It operated from the basement of the Cone University Center. In addition to NPR programs, it aired jazz during the day and classical music at night. Later, jazz was moved to night. The station grew rapidly, and within five years moved to much larger studios in the One University Place building near the UNC Charlotte campus, where it still is today.
