Description

WPSU-FM, listener-supported public radio, began as a student-run radio station (WDFM) in 1953, and since then has been transformed into a full-service PRI and NPR-affiliate station with more than 3,000 members. A part of Penn State Public Broadcasting, the station now provides 24-hours of quality programming each day for Central and Northern Pennsylvania.
