Our Station

Established in 1941, WHCL is a non-profit, student-run, free-form radio station. Located atop College Hill in the stunning village of Clinton, New York, our station boasts 270 watts of power and runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, blasting through the Mohawk Valley and its barely legal 40-mile radius.

Originally broadcasting from the basement of Root Hall, WHCL has found its home in South Residence Hall, Bristol Campus Center, and finally, its state of the art studios in Sadove Student Center. We provide over 100 students and professors on the Hill with the unique opportunity of expression, making WHCL one of the largest student organization on campus. Listen to us locally at 88.7 FM or globally from our live stream during broadcasting seasons.

Dreams of being a DJ?

We accept applications for new shows at the beginning of every semester from all class years. Look out for an email from the WHCL General Manager in your Hamilton email in early September or late January and be sure to respond!

Interested community members can email the General Manager to request a show, but will be accepted secondarily to students and faculty with space permitting.

Want to join the board?

The WHCL Executive Board holds elections at the end of every semester for the subsequent semester. Interested parties should look for an email from the General Manager detailing when applications are due.

See our Contacts page if you would like to email the current holder of the position you want for more information. WHCL also holds an open Executive Board meeting on the first Monday of every month at 7 PM in the Sadove Conference Room.
