WETN: A New Era

WETN, the College’s radio station since 1947, has been sold to the Educational Media Foundation (EMF). EMF operates Christian radio networks K-Love and Air1, the latter of which now broadcasts over the 88.1 FM frequency. 

Over the past 70 years, WETN hosted hundreds of students on-air and produced thousands of hours of drama, music, news, and sports coverage. 

The College is taking advantage of the World Wide Web to reach the entire globe with live and archived streams of chapel services, sports, and other campus events online.
