WZND-LP (103.3 MHz FM) is an Low Power FM licensed to Bloomington, McLean County, Illinois, United States. The station is staffed by students of Illinois State University and airs music from the 80s through the current Top 40.
103.3 began broadcasting on September 21, 2004, as WEWT-LP, "Truth 103", airing a Christian contemporary music format. As WEWT-LP, the station was also heard on W262AK 100.3 MHz, in Minier, Tazewell County, Illinois, which currently serves as a translator for WILL-FM.
On September 27, 2011, Illinois State University took over the 103.3 FM frequency from WEWT-LP, allowing Illinois State University's college radio station to be heard outside the Illinois State campus for the first time in its history. Illinois State University's college radio began broadcasting via carrier current on 106.1 FM and 540 AM on March 18, 1981. WZND is also broadcast on their website, wznd.com, on channel 4 in the Illinois State University dorms and the student fitness center.
WZND has had many locations on campus. Its original location was in Cook Hall in 1981, but moved to Old Union in 1985. In the spring of 1994, WZND relocated to the lower level of Fall Hall and remain there. A studio in the station is named after the founder of WZND (formerly WILN), Ruth Yates. In 2001, WZND became known as Z106 until 2010, when it again used its call letters WZND as its branding. As Z106, WZND had a duel format, playing three days of alternative music and three days of hip-hop. This continued until 2010, when it adopted its current format.
