The purpose and objective of non-profit, educational radio station WVYC, is to offer the York community cultural, informational and entertaining radio programming. As the only college station in York County, we offer a variety of alternative music and programming that is just not available from any other radio station in ... See more our area. We also serve as a training facility for all interested York College students to learn the art and science of radio broadcasting. Our History Mass communications plays a major role in our culture. We are constantly surrounded by the electronic media, and from them much of our information about the world is received. The control of these important informational sources rests in the hands of a few, and therefore the flow of information is restricted. The economic structure of media, being overly commercial and exclusive, makes this inevitable. Generally, access to the media requires large sums of money and the program content reflects the needs of commercial interests to maintain economic status quo. A mystique surrounds the electronic media because of their inaccessibility and at the same time, their importance to our lives. This mystique can only be broken down by demonstrating that these media are tools to be used by you, the programmers and volunteer staff that professionally operate this broadcast station licensed to York College of PA. WVYC (formerly WYCP, WMH and WMSR) was founded in the early seventies by a group of interested York College students and staff, who were willing to share their technical and programming expertise. We began programming on 640 AM from the lower level of the Student Union on November 18, 1972. In 1975 application was made to the FCC for an educational FM license at 88.1 MHz. WVYC signed on the air at 4:00 PM on November 18, 1976 with a live remote broadcast from Wolf Gymnasium, of the inauguration of York College president Dr. Robert V. Iosue. The first song was Don McLean’s, American Pie, played by Dave Davies. The First newscast was read by Mark Wormsbaker at 8 PM. More information can be found on the WVYC tribute page. Initially, from newly constructed studios located on the third floor of the Life Sciences Building, we broadcast from 4:00 PM until midnight. In the fall of 1986 after 2 & 1/2 cramped months in a temporary basement room, we moved into our present facilities on the third floor of the Dr. Robert V. Iosue Student Union Building. The official sign on was at 4 PM on November 18, exactly ten years after our first broadcast. On November 18, 1997, the FCC moved WVYC to 99.7 MHz on the FM dial. The station’s first broadcast at the new frequency was at 4:00 PM; exactly twenty one years after we first signed on the air. We also posted our first web page on the Internet at this time. Most of our archived web pages can be accessed by placing the year after our web address, including http://www.wvyc.org/1997, our first web page. WVYC FM began broadcasting mp3 audio streams on the Internet in the fall of 2001. Our first internet stream was at 4 PM on November 18, 2001, exactly 25 years after we first signed on the air. We received reception reports from every continent except Antarctica within the first hour. WVYC AM operates on a carrier current frequency of 640 kHz, and on channel 7 of the York College cable TV system, broadcasting to the students on the campus. The AM programming is also heard on P.A. systems in the cafeteria and Student Union building. WVYC AM also broadcasts a separate mp3 audio stream on the Internet. Click here to see which streams are active and how many are listening. WVYC FM operates on a frequency of 99.7 MHz and broadcasts to a large portion of York County and beyond. Both stations are programmed independently, however when the AM station is off the air the FM station is programmed over the AM facilities. The radio station is and has always been fully student managed. We operate as a division of the Music, Art, and Communication Department, chaired by Dr. Brian Furio, and supervised by our long time Faculty Advisor, Mr. Thomas K. Gibson.
