WHWS Featured In Rochester Newspaper Article

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle today (4/8/13) published a front page story with the headline "Colleges Keep a Unique Beat"-"Campus radio meeting challenge of new music in new era" WEOS & WHWS station manager Greg Cotterill and WHWS Music Director Hazel Moellering were both quoted in the article.  

Hobart and William Smith Colleges have a similar arrangement with WXXI for its station, WEOS-FM (89.7) but the college teamed up with the Smith Opera House to launch a student,                                          station,WHWS-LP-FM  (105.7) in 2008. WEOS has been broadcasting National Public Radio programs since 1990, but struck an agreement with WXXI, the local NPR affiliate, in 2010 that had WXXI take over some of the administrative responsibilities of WEOS, which has remained under the colleges’ ownership. “It all came together when the economy took a dive,” said Greg Cotterill, who manages the stations for the colleges. WHWS has become the main outlet for the students, though from midnight to 10 a.m. Radio Bilingual — Spanish language-speaking program from Fresno, Calif., — is played on this low-power station that can be heard in Geneva and the surrounding area. 

 Hazel Interviews Mrs. Mary Gearan during the WHWS live broadcast from the construction of the Lakefront Playground last October.

Hazel Moellering, a 21-year-old senior who is the music director of WHWS, describes the music played on the station as “cool and off-tempo.” “We’re letting people explore less mainstream types of music. We get lots of alternatives, international stuff — and lesser known stuff from all over the country,” said Moellering, a graduate of the International Baccalaureate Program at the Wilson Magnet Commencement Academy.
