Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the last two months of the MPAC season were canceled, and financial pressures forced the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center to put two of its buildings up for sale. One of the buildings was 406 N. Main Street, where the WBOM studios were located.
Over the last two months, WBOM has been moving to its new studio located in the Starr Center (415 N. Church Street). The move has been difficult – both physically and emotionally – but it is now complete. The new studio is now up and running.
WBOM began at 406 N. Main Street as a pair of empty rooms. It completed its run there as four studios, filled with equipment and many, many memories. The new studio – named “Studio V” to celebrate and continue the legacy from the old building – has the equipment now. New memories will be forthcoming.
