History

Prior to its move to 3,000 watts in the 1980s, WRDL was assigned to the frequency of 89.5 MHz, using the extreme low power assignment of 10 watts of power.

The station gets its call letters from the initials of Richard D. Leidy, an adjunct professor that founded the radio/television department, at what was then called Ashland College. He led the department from 1960 to 1988, when he retired.[3]

In 1993, student staff adopted the nickname "The Eagle," because it was easier to say than the call letters. The name references the university's mascot, the Eagles.
