HISTORY

Mount Union's radio station was born January 10, 1966 by a group of Mount Union students. It started as a carrier current station using Mount Union's power lines to reach the residence halls. The original station contained one studio in the basement of Miller Hall. WRMU continued as a campus-only station until October 17, 1970 when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted the institution a license for WRMU to become a full-fledged FM station with the frequency 91.1.

From the basement of Miller Hall, the radio station moved to new quarters on the second floor of Memorial Hall in 1983. The station grew from two studios to a total of four. In May of 1996, the station moved into its new and current home in the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
