Who we are

A Brief History of KWOU

KWOU is a student-run online radio station and has been the sound of Western Oregon University since our humble beginnings in a closet at the Werner University Center in 2010. Since then, we’ve moved out to Terry House and are always blasting tunes, growing our music library, and adding to our broadcast equipment. The station exists to provide Western students, staff, and faculty a chance to share their music and perspectives with the world online 24/7, 365.

We’re always looking for show hosts, music junkies, marketing-minded individuals, outcasts, and anyone who can help make our station and our community a stronger, more connected one.
