About WGRE at DePauw University

DePauw was the first 10-watt FM educational broadcasting station in the country when our station went on air in 1949. Our current call letters WGRE were established to reflect the first three letters of our town, Greencastle. Today, we are an 800-watt FM station that broadcasts 24/7 on the air and on the web at WGRE is the largest student-run organization on campus, as we have over 200 student DJs who man the booth during the week. WGRE is consistently ranked in the top 5 of the Princeton Review’s “Best College Radio Stations” and are currently ranked number 2. Since the mid-1990s, WGRE has also received more than 100 awards from organizations such as the Society of Professional Journalists and the Associated Press recognizing journalistic excellence.
