Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)

Storyteller Erin Valle chats with Vicki Niswander, chair of WEFT’s board of directors, about the last 40 years at the community radio station.

In 1975, a group of radio enthusiasts decided to create a radio station that was by the community, for the community. WEFT 90.1 FM hit the airwaves on September 26, 1981.

Since then, volunteers (airshifters) have lead a diverse range of programs from world music to news. Today, WEFT is one of three community radio stations in Illinois.
