WVAC-FM (107.9 FM) is a campus radio station broadcasting a Top 40 and Alternative Rock format. The station is licensed to Adrian College.

The station has legally been WVAC-FM rather than simply WVAC since 1991. From then until 2002, the WVAC calls were used by an AM station in Norwalk, Ohio (now WLKR). In the 1968 till 1974 WVAC, the "Voice at Curry", was a carrier-current AM station at Curry College, Milton MA which later became WMLN-FM.

Station Content[edit]

The Science Fiction talk show "The Frak Report" is featured on WVAC-FM. The show is widely popular on the campus of Adrian College, while also having a smaller following in the greater Adrian community. The Frak Report is currently on its third season of broadcasting, being formerly known as "Two Nerds & a Wookiee." The hosts of The Frak Report humorously boast that the show is the "number one rated sci fi talk show in Lenawee County" when in fact it is the one show of its kind in Lenawee County.[1][2]
