History

WRUW has its earliest roots in "WFSM", started in 1946 by the Flora Stone Mather Radio Club, which presented programing via a public address system. This was followed by the AM station WRAR in 1955 and by WRUW-FM in 1967.[1]

WRUW began as a 10-watt monoaural station, gained stereo capability in 1974 and saw a power increase to 1000 watts in 1980. WRUW's power was boosted to its current level of 15,000 watts on March 5, 2002.[1]

Over the years, WRUW has worked to maintain ties to the community, co-sponsoring events with Case Western Reserve University and other University Circle institutions, maintaing a relationship with the Hessler Street Fair, and providing a voice for community members not otherwise associated with Case Western Reserve University.[1]
