We are so glad to have WNCU as one of our partners this year! WNCU operates at North Carolina Central University, near the heart of Durham. The mission of WNCU is simple: to embrace education in a broad sense by giving listeners in-depth and thoughtful cultural music, news and information programs designed to increase their awareness and provide information, which may be useful in enhancing their daily lives. They consistently produce culturally enriching programs and thought-provoking conversation.
Since its debut in August 1995, WNCU, 90.7 FM has fulfilled its mission to provide quality programming to public radio listeners in the Triangle area. The format entertains the jazz aficionado, educates the novice jazz listener and disseminates news and information relative to the community-at-large.
WNCU was the vision of Donald Baker, the first general manager of the radio station. Even as a student at North Carolina Central University, Donald floated his passionate idea to university administrators.
Today, WNCU continues to provide a culturally diverse programming lineup.As WNCU observes twelve years of commercial free broadcasting, we at the Art of Cool celebrate the stations’ rich programming diversity in music, news and information.
