WESS is a student operated, non-commercial, FCC Licensed college radio station located on the campus of East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania. The station has a diversified music format, which gives listeners and deejays more variety and freedom. The station also offer talk shows, where listeners can call in and voice their opinion on topics being discussed on the show.

WESS also broadcasts the ESU Warrior’s home football, basketball, and Baseball games all year long with play by play from our Sports Director and his or her sports crew.

Students at ESU can listen in by tuning their radio dials to FM frequency 90.3, as well as tuning to Channel 14 or 15 on Cable TV in the dorms, or by listening online.

Although the station is on-campus, we are operating at 1000 watts, sending our signal out over a 15-30 mile radius in the Poconos and parts of northwestern New Jersey.

The purpose of WESS is to provide a means of student training and experience in radio broadcasting, and to provide East Stroudsburg University and the surrounding communities with alternative entertainment and educational programming.
