The storied history of WBLD-FM goes all the way back to 1974. Back then, thanks for a contribution from a local resident and the efforts ... See more of a battery of West Bloomfield School District officials, one of the first FM Educational radio stations in the station of Michigan was licensed by the FCC and put on the air. The original Studio location was in the "Senior Pod" located next to receiving on the far south side of the High School. That is where the current walk-in refrigerator is located. The studios were eventually moved to the south side of the media center, then next to room C-901 on the west side of the media center, where it stood until July of 2001. Through the years, West Bloomfield teacher David Albery was the original station manager of WBLD-FM. Mr. Albery also taught Broadcasting I and II which utilized the radio station facilities. WBLD was, back in those days, on the air from 7:30am until 10:00pm, providing a wide variety of music, information and much more. Enter Paul Townley, who took over as the WBLD Radio Station Manager on August 8, 1988. Mr. Townley, with a Radio degree from Michigan State and 7 years broadcast experience, provided adult supervision at all times for the first time on the radio station. WBLD expanded its operations so that there was as many as 50 staff members each year on the radio station. New equipment and technology was brought in, and WBLD was starting to achieve its initial goal as being a voice of the West Bloomfield District and Community. In the past few years, WBLD has also won numerous awards, including several awards and commendations for excellence from the Michigan Association of Educational Broadcasters in the fields of On-air broadcasting, news, sports, play-by-play and general excellence.
