Back on the Air! Web Streaming Soon.

WHWS is back on the air!  The station had to go dark for 3-and-half days as we made the move with our sister station WEOS from 113 Hamillton Street into the Scandling Center at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.  Here's more photos of the old and the new!

WHWS Leaving the Airwaves-for a while.

WHWS LP is moving!!  We are about to leave our home at 113 Hamilton Street in Geneva. WHWS and our sister station WEOS are moving into the Scandling Center at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Expect for a brief time period, WEOS will remain on the air.  WHWS 105.7fm will leave the airwaves for an undetermined amount of time.  Check back here at whws.fm for updates.

Here's what we look like now (coming soon picture from the new studios still under construction)
The upstairs offices and bathroom, and taking apart  the WHWS studios.

The End is Near for WEOS and WHWS at 113 Hamilton Street

Destruction and construction is underway in and around the WEOS and WHWS studios.   We are getting ready to make the move into the Scandling Center.  Trees are dropping and the stations satellite dishes have been moved to make way for a new parking lot.   The old brown house will be home to some "lucky" HWS students later this fall.  More moving photos will be posted here in the near future!
