The station is owned and operated by the Student Senate, which channels student activity fee money to many worthwhile clubs, organizations and activities, and is the central student governing body.
Started about three years ago by a few who wanted to offer radio training to the students, a studio was revamped and necessary equipment installed. Things were very disorganized in those days, and most of the time the station was off the air. Time does wonders for many things. Today, WONY is one of the best equipped college stations in the Tier area.
After a period of training, each member is assigned a weekly “spot.” It might be any one of the many shows offered: classical music, rock-and-roll, Broadway music, folk music or jazz, news or an educational show.
