WCVH (90.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting from Hunterdon Central Regional High School.[1] The station first went on the air in April 1974. The station features country music and specialty programming. Starting in 2007, the station began airing play-by-play for Hunterdon Central Football and Basketball.

From 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM on school nights, the station is run by student DJs who work in pairs of two or three for 2 hour shifts. The shifts are from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, and 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The students are able to learn about radio operations while practicing it themselves.
