WRGG, Greencastle's community radio station, has become its own independent non-profit corporation.

On June 14, 2016, Wade G. Burkholder, C. Gregory Hoover and Benjamin F. Thomas Jr., the radio committee of Greencastle-Antrim Education Foundation, launched WRGG Radio with a mission to serve the Greencastle-Antrim community and beyond, supporting education, the arts and athletic excellence via quality FM radio broadcasting.

"That mission is successfully being fulfilled," according to a new release from Burkholder, who serves as president of Good Companion Radio.

An agreement recently was signed between G-AEF and Good Companion Radio to dissolve the radio committee, which had been the plan from the beginning.

Hoover and Thomas, along with Mary E. Bock and Cheryl A. Brown will serve as officers and board members of the new corporation. Hoover remains director of operations. and Linda A. Burkholder will continue as finance manager of WRGG.

"It is the desire of Good Companion Radio to maintain its community mission and continue to grow and make an even bigger footprint in the surrounding areas of Greencastle-Antrim," according to Burkholder. "There will be a stronger effort to get greater involvement within Mercersburg, Waynesboro, Chambersburg and Washington County, Maryland."

More than 30 people volunteer with various aspects of the station with numerous specialty programs produced locally and airing on radio stations throughout the United States, with some in foreign countries.

WRGG can be heard at 93.7 FM; online worldwide at www.wrgg.org; and on devices connected by a Tune-in app.

WRGG is supported by underwriting from local businesses, and contributions from listeners.
