Station Information

WWNW is a non-commercial radio station, operating in the non-commercial FM radio band at 88.7 mHz. Unlike many stations on the non-commercial FM band, WWNW is programmed much like a commercially-formatted for-profit enterprise, rather than a free-form program-based format often found at most college radio stations. The most obvious exception is the lack of commercials, which are replaced by logged public service announcements, station promos, and underwritings at certain points during the broadcast day.

Since its beginning, WWNW has programmed a mass-appeal format of adult contemporary music, first going on the air under the moniker "Hit Radio 89", with local newscasts relative to the community. Over the years, the name was changed to Titan Radio in an effort to enhance school spirit, but the programming elements remained the same.

All on-air personnel are required to adhere to a structured format and tightly-controlled playlist. Disc jockeys are strictly Telecommunications majors who desire to pursue a career in broadcasting after graduation, unlike typical college stations that are run more on a public access basis. They typically work airshifts of four or five hours as they would on a commercial radio station, as the "lab" portion of their coursework. Those who do not show up for their shifts without advance notice are given a failing grade and dismissed from the program.

Because of WWNW's serious approach to broadcasting, the station is frequently heard in local businesses in the New Wilmington area, who support the station through grant underwritings. The station has also been recognized as one of the Top College Radio Stations in the U.S. by The Princeton Review [2].
