Classic Arts News   WQXR-FM Expands Access To Its Internet Audio Stream
96.3 FM WQXR, New York's largest all-classical radio station, is expanding access to its Internet audio stream, which most recently has been accessible exclusively through Radio@AOL. The stream will continue to be part of the AOL Radio Network, but will now also be available in both Windows Media Player and Real Player formats directly from the www.wqxr.com website, at both high and low bandwidth.

"We are delighted not only to continue to be offered on the AOL Radio Network, but also finally to answer those listeners who have been asking for access to our audio stream from a variety of different platforms," said WQXR General Manager and New York Times Radio President Tom Bartunek. "Thanks in great part to the cooperation of our Internet stream provider, Quality Technology Services, we can now provide even easier access to WQXR for our audience around the globe, in whatever ways they may choose to listen."

Founded in 1936, 96.3 WQXR-FM was the nation's first commercial classical music radio station; since 1944, it has been owned and operated by The New York Times Company. The most listened-to classical station in the United States, with nearly a million listeners tuning in each week, WQXR also features regular news, analysis and commentary from correspondents of The New York Times. WQXR is available online at www.wqxr.com and through Radio@AOL. More information about the station and its programming are available at www.wqxr.com.
