WCIR-FM (103.7 FM, "103 CIR") is a Top 40 formatted radio station serving the Beckley, West Virginia area. The station has an ERP of 5,000 watts, but the Height Above Average Terrain of the station is 452 meters (1484 feet), meaning the station broadcasts farther than a typical 5,000 watt radio station that broadcasts at normal height.

History
