WEAA celebrates 45 years of being the voice of the community


WEAA is celebrating 45 years of being the voice of the community!

WEAA 88.9, an NPR affiliated public radio station of Morgan State University, first began broadcasting on January 10, 1977.

The station's call letters stand for "We Educate African Americans."

We serve as a learning lab to educate and prepare our students for careers in journalism and media, while also providing our broader listener community with music and news programming that enlightens and entertains.

The station’s 24-hour format features a range of music programs, including jazz, R&B, neo-soul, reggae, hip-hop, and gospel. WEAA also provides locally produced news, including coverage from student journalists and from NPR.

Read the story of WEAA's first year, as told in a 1977 issue of Morgan Magazine.
