This building, at 1502 Wampanoag Trail in East Providence, was originally built to house the studios of WPRO (630 Providence) and WPRO-FM (92.3 Providence), I'm gussing (from the style of construction) when WPRO-TV (12 Providence, now WPRI) was sold separately. It now holds the studios of the entire Citadel Providence cluster, which also includes WSKO (790 Providence)/WSKO-FM (99.7 Wakefield-Peace Dale) and WWLI (105.1 Providence).
This building is named the "Salty Brine Broadcast Center" after the legendary Rhode Island personality who worked mornings on WPRO for fifty years.
