They are owned by Carroll University. WCCX is also known as "The X" and "The voice of Carroll University," and plays an eclectic mix typical of college radio, including music from both major label and independent artists. WCCX is also the only media outlet covering Carroll Pioneer athletic events. The original call letters for the station were WCCZ.
