WWSU broadcasts in an open format. This means that the DJ has nearly complete control over what gets played on the air. Shows typically average two hours, with an automation system playing when no DJs are on the air.
The station staff is made up of Wright State students. Members of the faculty also assist with the station, but mostly in a hands-off fashion, as the radio station is intended to be a student run environment. DJs consist mostly of current Wright State students, but alumni and staff are welcome to have a show time.
While WWSU broadcasts in an open format, the current main genre on the station shifts between Hip-Hop and Rock. The station also puts a spotlight on Dayton music, broadcasting both larger and smaller acts from the area. Local artists occasionally perform live on various shows on the station.
WWSU is also home to the nationally-recognized show Radio Rounds, a medical talk show. Radio Rounds is the first radio program in the United States to be produced entirely by medical students.
