When the University of Hartford was incorporated just over 50 years ago by business and community leaders, they envisioned a center of education and culture for Greater Hartford. At its core, it would be a university for the community created by the community.
The University has come a long way since its humble beginnings on Hartford’s last remaining farm, evolving from a local school for commuters into a comprehensive university that attracts students from throughout the world. Yet it remains true to its original mission of serving as a valued resource for individuals, families, businesses, and communities throughout the Hartford region, offering hundreds of programs that serve the University and its neighbors every day. For close to 45 years listener supported WWUH has served an important role in the University's community service mission.

WWUH broadcasts on 91.3 MHz from a tower atop Avon Mountain, in Avon, CT. Our antenna is over 1,100 feet above sea level, and our signal covers about 20+ miles in all directions. A number of area "sister stations" carry our programming at various times each day.
Currently those stations are:
WAPJ, Torrington, CT, 89.9 MHz and 105.1 MHz WWUH is carried at various times throughout the day.
WDJW, Somers, CT, 89.7 MHz (from Somers High School) We are currently on this station for a large portion of the day. Their signal helps listeners in the Somers and Stafford Springs receive our signal.
WWEB, Wallingford, CT, 89.9 MHz (from Choate Rosemary School) WWUH is aired on this local station when their students are not available to host liveprogramming.
We have sixty music shows on WWUH and, in essence, sixty music directors as each host is responsible for picking his/her musical selections.
You can request a sample copy of our WWUH Program Guide by dialing the WWUH Listener Line at 860 768-5913 and following the prompts to leave your message or request a sample copy.
The air studio phone number is 860 768-4701. While our announcers like to hear from their listeners, there may be times when they are so busy that they simply cannot answer the phone. Please be patient.
If you are having trouble connecting to our webcasts, contact us at email@example.com. Put "webcast problems" in the subject line.
You can find out what is on at any given time by looking at the "Now Playing" section at the top of the wwuh.org home page. That information is updated every few minutes. You can also see what we have played over the last 31 days by clicking on the Music Playlists icon on the left side of our home page. You will see our playlists listed in 48 hour increments (we picked 48 hours so that the page would load as quickly as possible.) By changing the number at the top of the page and hitting the submit button, you can access previous playlists up to 31 days.
WWUH is one of the few stations that retains a copy of every single recording we receive. That is why we currently have over 90,000 LPs and CD's in our library! Since there is no "required" playlist, our announcers are free to play whatever they choose within the genre limits of their show. Obviously, we welcome submissions of CDs. All music releases should be sent directly to the radio station at:
attn: Music Director
200 Bloomfield Avenue
West Hartford, CT 06117
Public Service Announcements (PSAs) for non-profit organizations must be received by the station at least two weeks prior to the event. We prefer that you email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the word "PSA" in the subject line, or FAX them to us at 860 768-5701. Provide as many details as possible and always include a contact phone number for information.
