WHWS is Streaming Again!!

We are still working to settle into our new home in the Scandling Center.   In the rush to move out of the house, the number one priority was to stay on the air.  Our sister station WEOS was off the air for about 30 minutes on the weekend of the move.  WHWS was off from Friday afternoon (7/25) to Monday afternoon (7/28).   

Both stations share the same room for now.   The new studio with new equipment will come later this fall.  Tours will be able to look from in front of the Post Office and see the new studios through the large glass window. (The vending machines currently block the window, they will soon be moved).

The soon to be studio


 The temporary set-up. Nolan and Russell installing microphones today!

WEOS has been streaming for the past couple of weeks.  The WHWS stream went back on today.

All students, new and returning DJ's will have to be trained again on equipment.   More on that coming up at our meeting on Tuesday September 9th.

It's going to be different than the old house, but when it's all completed it will be one new sleek mothership!

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 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!
