WMRC-First Class Radio 1490AM, the area's pioneer radio station took to the airwaves in 1956, making it one of the oldest continuously locally owned and operated commercial radio stations in the state of Massachusetts and the only radio station to win the coveted "Station of the Year" Award, presented by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association, on five separate occasions (a record never duplicated).
Our service area consists of Milford, our city of license, as well the following communities – Bellingham, Medway, Millis, Franklin, Holliston, Hopkinton, Uxbridge, Whitinsville, Northbridge, Millville, Mendon, Upton, and Hopedale.
WMRC is the communities' choice for local news, weather, sports, traffic, event information, local high school, collegiate and professional sports coverage, national news and "what's going on" throughout the region. If it's happening around the WMRC listening area, WMRC is either reporting it, or covering it live.
