WHSN (89.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting an alternative rock format. Licensed to Bangor, Maine, United States, the station serves the Bangor area. The station is owned by Husson University.[1] The station is run by the students of the New England School of Communications, which is located on the campus of Husson University. The station was run by Husson from its sign on until the mid-1980s when NESCom moved from its Broadway campus to the Husson campus. In 2006 the station upgraded its signal from 140 watts to 3,000 watts and moved its transmitter to behind the NESCom building. In July 2016 WHSN was named a finalist for a Marconi Award for Non-Commercial Station Of The Year.[2]
