Tech Update: Time Warner Cable

We have received several calls from listeners who usually hear WJFF over Time Warner Cable.  It seems that an error at TWC's facilities has resulted in WQXR being broadcast over the channel normally reserved for WJFF.  We are working with Time Warner Cable to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.  In the meantime, you can stream WJFF live over the internet by clicking one of these links:
