A-B Tech’s “No Limits” radio show was founded in 2013 in collaboration with WRES 100.7 FM radio, Asheville’s first African American public radio station, and the Empowerment Resource Center.

WRES founder, the late Elder John Hayes, initially invited A-B Tech to begin a radio program to help local African American youth explore their options for college.
