Asheville's Radio

The WRES offices are located at 91 Patton Avenue, right in the heart of downtown, and our FM signal is broadcast from the top of the Vanderbilt apartments. The official area that WRES reaches is within Asheville City Limits, but we have had reports of reception as far as Weaverville to the north, Hendersonville to the south, Canton to the west and Black Mountain to the east.
