Indiana State University and WFYI Public Media are now broadcasting public radio programming to listeners from west-central Indiana and eastern Illinois on WISU, 89.7 FM. 

The new partnership between the two went live at noon on Thursday. The station will provide the ISU with NPR programming and offer new opportunities for students, according to an ISU press release. 

Also on Thursday, WISU’s student programming moved to its new home on WZIS, 90.7 FM. The second station was made possible when Indiana State University acquired WMHD, 90.7, from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in August. 

Now, 178,000 potential listeners from west-central Indiana and eastern Illinois can listen to WFYI through Indiana State University. Programs will include “Morning Edition,” “Fresh Air,” “All Things Considered” and “This American Life.” 

“This is a great time for student broadcasting at ISU,” said Richard Green, general manager for WISU. “These students will now have the ability to continue the everyday music programming, as well as gain valuable experience in news and public affairs radio.”

Indiana State University officials believe the station changes will offer more learning opportunities for students and provide great services to listeners. 

“We are very happy on behalf of myself and the student station on forming our relationship with WFYI and the transition has been a great success so far,” said Max Slizewski, ISU student station manager. “Hopefully this will lead to more opportunities for us and the entire ISU community.”
