WNYU’s mission is to provide our tri-state listening community, defined by our signal’s reach, with educational alternative radio programming. The FCC mandates that non-commercial college radio licensees must provide such an alternative. Alternative is relative to your market, including the commercial market: people listen to the radio, not exclusively commercial or non-commercial radio. So when we program the station, we consider the entire radio market and determine if programming of a similar nature exists within our listening community. We want to make programming sense by offering listening alternatives. If you hear it on another station, you probably won’t hear it on WNYU.

WNYU is a 24 hour-a-day, 365 day-a-year student managed and staffed operation: we maintain and transmit a signal constantly. We are committed to addressing the needs and concerns of our immediate NYU student and village population through direct participation and interaction. We educate and entertain our community with unique music, news and student-produced shows exclusive to WNYU but with interest beyond the campus and the Village.

WNYU encourages student participation from all schools within NYU. Drawing from this diverse environment, WNYU remains fresh and daring, uninhibited by commercial pressures. We don’t have to get a “ten-share” to stay on the air. That is not to say that we don’t have a professional attitude, but it is to say that we take full advantage of our non-commercial obligations and opportunities. We can program what other stations can’t even imagine.
