About WLUW

Amazing staff members at WLUW!

WLUW 88.7 FM is the student-run independent radio station broadcasting from the School of Communication at Loyola University Chicago. WLUW is dedicated to broadcasting independent music and informative talk programming. What does that mean? You won’t hear any top 40 tunes here! 

WLUW broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week and streams worldwide. You can also catch us at nearly every Chicago music festival. WLUW seeks to provide the leading college radio experience in Chicago. We are a source of learning and growth for Loyola students, and we broaden Loyola University core values through the medium of radio and digital media.
