WMUW has a variety of radio shows lined up this semester. For a diverse student population, it can be hard to find radio shows that are diverse and appeal to a wide range of musical or news interests. The student-run shows provide just what the listener wants to hear.

Here are some of this semester’s shows:

“The name of my show is called ‘Weekend Warm-up.’ It’s on Friday from 6-7 p.m. It’s a show that plays gospel contemporary rap, like Lecrae and Andy Mineo. I talk about what is happening in the town, on campus or what’s on my mind. I hope listeners will find inspiration from the show,” said Chris Richardson, a junior communication major.
