We are the Radio voice of North Central College in Naperville, Illinois. We are completely student run and broadcast at the 89.1 frequency on the FM dial as well as online. Check us out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Soundcloud!
We are on the air 24/7 365 days of the year and we always have someone in the studio; no robots here! Our station was named the 2015 Abraham and Borst Best College Radio Station of the Year by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System. We are the most awarded station in the country and actively participate in commercial and student broadcast competitions throughout the year.
WONC has been a part of the fabric of life in Chicago’s western suburbs for more than forty years. We first went on-air back in 1968. Since then we have gone through manys changes but continued to grow and stay dedicated to our listeners.We are an entirely student run station. That means every DJ, newscast, sportscast, traffic report, and sports broadcast you hear is a student of North Central College. Of course we could not do it without the help of John Madormo, Assistant Professor of Broadcast Communication at North Central.The station’s programming is described as AOR — that’s “radio lingo” for album-oriented rock. We differ from other stations due to the variety of music that we play. It is very rare on a radio station that you can hear Twenty One Pilots or Motion City Soundtrack followed by the likes of The Beatles and CCR. It’s a wide mix of music with an emphasis on balancing new rock with classic rock and all points in between.
We are on the air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The radio voice of North Central College is always playing the very best in Pure Rock!
