WJCU is a noncommercial FM broadcast station owned and operated by John Carroll University. With both studio and transmitter facilities located on the JCU campus
in University Heights, Ohio, WJCU operates on a non-stop schedule with an effective radiated power of 2500 watts.
WJCU’s mission is characterized by three equally important dimensions. First among these is a mandate to deliver unique and diverse radio programming that serves community interests and tastes. WJCU attempts to meet this goal by offering an eclectic mix of music, sports, poetry, ethnic, informational, and public service programming elsewhere on the dial.
Another of the station’s key functions is to provide an opportunity for students to gain real-world experience in an ongoing media production and delivery process. With the exception of a professional director, all day to day management and operations are performed by student managers and directors appointed by their peers. The fact that the station is operated under the aegis of JCU’s Department of Communication and Theatre Arts reflects the University’s belief that the best way for students to learn is by doing.
Finally, WJCU serves as an important link between the University and surrounding communities. Not only does the station carry news about university programs, special events, and activities -it also provides free air time for community broadcasters who serve the unique needs of diverse ethnic and cultural groups. Public service and community event announcements, along with short form programming provided by national, regional, and local service organizations are a few more ways John Carroll University serves the community through its radio outlet.
