WUNH is kicking off the University of New Hampshire's Spring semester in full force! On top of all of the time changes occuring, you'll also see new shows popping up. Science Observatory, a combination of music, science, and the hard work of host Sabah, leads the way at the beginning of each week.
WUNH is a student-run radio station, which means that every year we say goodbye to some of our graduating DJs. While parting is never an easy task, there are some individuals whose exceptional dedication, leadership, and impact on WUNH make it that much harder to say goodbye. Sports Director Matt Walsh is one of those individuals. Since his sophomore year Matt has lead the sports department to new heights, improving and increasing UNH Sports broadcasts, organizing and polishing the Thursday night Wildchats show, and vastly expanding the number of participating WUNH sports DJs. Matt will leave a legacy of professionalism and leadership when he graduates this December, and we wish him luck as he moves on to a bright, successful future.
Tune in for Matt's three final appearances as WUNH Sports Director, Thursday 11/29 for WIldchats from 6-8pm, Friday 11/30 for UNH Hockey, and Thursday 12/6 for UNH Hockey.
Say your goodbyes and thanks on the WUNH Sports Radio Facebook page.

WUNH was nominated for three CMJ awards this year! As a whole, the station was nominated for the Biggest Improvement and Digital Leader awards. Music Director Sean Riley (pictured above) was nominated for the Will Never Sell Out award. Perhaps the highlight of WUNH's week was seeing Sean in the Music Directors Summit Panel on College Day at CMJ. Topics covered during the panel included professionalism and ethics in college radio, consistent communication with coworkers, and sticking to your station's goals and philosophy. Congratulations to Sean for representing The Freewaves so well!
While we returned from a week long adventure in New York City with no awards, we did gain valuable experience, contacts, national recognition, and a ton of new music to share with our listeners! Be sure to tune in at 91.3fm and right here at wunh.org to hear some of CMJ's top artists!

Monday Night Jazz is finding its way back to its roots through the likes of Charles Mingus, Stanley Clarke, and the new DJ spinning it all.
Having gone through a slur of DJs in recent years with their own unique feelings about what truly great jazz sounds like, will this young DJ live up to the name? We sure think so.
