CD 92.9 Announces Airwaves Departure

After 33 years, the legendary, locally owned CD 92.9 will be leaving the central Ohio airwaves

Columbus, OH– January 5, 2024– Alternative rock radio station CD 92.9, a central Ohio legend and one of Ohio’s last independently operated radio stations, will be ending its radio broadcast as of January 31, 2024, announced Randy Malloy, President and owner of WWCD, Ltd. dba CD 92.9 owner.  “After extensive discussions, the FCC licensees (ICS Communications, Inc. and Delmar Communications, Inc.) and WWCD, Ltd. dba CD 92.9 were unable to finalize an agreement that would have allowed us to continue broadcasting on the FM dial,” said Malloy.  Malloy reported that CD 92.9 tried its best to be able to remain on the airwaves, but unfortunately, it was unable to do so.  “While it pains me to once again announce our departure from the airwaves, the WWCD radio brand, along with CD 92.9 merchandise, will remain available on our website,,” continued Malloy.  

The WWCD brand (CD101, CD102.5, and CD 92.9) was established in 1990 in Columbus, Ohio, as an independently owned and operated, alternative rock radio station.  Throughout its 33-year history, the station has remained committed to and has been a vital component of the Columbus community.  The WWCD brand has been a strong partner of Columbus nonprofit organizations, providing arts, culture, and social-service organizations promotional support to reach key target audiences.  The station’s nonprofit foundation, CD102.5 for the Kids, has donated more than $1 million to children’s charities over the past 33 years.  The station’s intern program has helped hundreds of young adults learn essential skills and make invaluable contacts, helping land them careers both in and out of the music industry.  All of these impacts stemmed from Malloy’s fervent belief that radio done right is about more than charts and ratings—it’s about community, and it’s about people.
