For the first time, 88.1 FM WESU was elected the “Best College Radio Station” in the 2013 Hartford Advocate Readers Poll.
WESU is Wesleyan’s non-commercial college and community radio station, reaching an audience of 1 million people throughout Connecticut and southern Massachusetts. The station offers a wide variation of music and free form shows, as well as a schedule of public affairs and independent and alternative news programming. On last year’s Hartford Advocate Readers Poll, WESU placed third, behind 91.7 FM WHUS, from the University of Connecticut, and 91.3 FM WWUH, from the University of Hartford.
Rob DeRosa, host of WESU local music show “Homegrown” and manager of the Red and Black Café, placed second in the “Best Radio Show” category.
