WFAE, Charlotte’s NPR station, will relocate most of its operations from University City to the historic building currently occupied by Google Fiber in Uptown, Axios’ Danielle Chemtob writes.

Details: The radio station plans to use the 12,000-square-foot space inside an early 1900s building for community events like debates and concerts.

  • WFAE expects to bring its staff into the space in November.

Why it matters: The space is located in First Ward Park in an area that is seeing a wave of changes, from the 7th and Tryon redevelopment to the restoration of the Carolina Theatre.

What they’re saying: WFAE CEO Joe O’Connor tells Axios the idea is modeled after event and performance spaces public radio stations have in cities like New York, Boston and Santa Monica.
