wiit is for creators.
WIIT is a hub of creativity and self-expression for the students of Illinois Institute of Technology, and a way for the university to connect with the broader community. Our main goal is to give Illinois Tech students hands-on experience in managing and operating a radio station while providing a platform for open-format programming. We’re all about helping students develop valuable skills and showcase their unique voices on air. This creativity is what differentiates WIIT from a commercial Radio Station.
wiit is more than music.
WIIT is more than just a radio station – we’re a vibrant community of music lovers, creators, and collaborators. In addition to our diverse range of music programming, we also feature a lively blog where we share interviews, concert reviews, and artist spotlights. Our blog is a platform for students to showcase their writing skills and share their passion for music with a wider audience. We believe in the power of music to connect people and foster a sense of community, both on and off the air. Whether you’re a student looking to get involved, an artist looking for exposure, or simply a music fan looking for your next favorite artist, WIIT has something for everyone.
The WIIT studio and DJ lounge is located in The McCormick Tribune Campus Center. We boast a state-of-the-art facility and are always looking for new DJs.
