The campus radio station, WWVU-FM (affectionately known as U92) has been on the air for 36 years, broadcasting from the studios in the Mountainlair. Since 1982, U92 has been a hands-on training ground for students interested in programming music, producing digital content in state-of-the-art studios, providing live Mountaineer sports coverage, or reporting on local and state news. The station is completely student-run and while there is a professional staff member who oversees the operation, it is up to the student directors and volunteer staff to create all content.
U92 broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There is a wide variety of specialty programming which reflects the diverse community at WVU and the surrounding area. If you have a genre of music you love, chances are you can find it at U92. Listen online at U92.wvu.edu or locally at 91.7 on your radio. Student DJs program their own shows and typically host a weekly radio show of their own.
The U92 music director receives new music on a weekly basis which is reviewed and added to the playlist. News and sports broadcasters write and share their reports daily live on air and through podcasts.
