WIXQ (91.7 FM, "The Ville") is a non-commercial college FM radio station owned by Millersville University and licensed to serve Millersville, Pennsylvania. The station is staffed by students as an extra-curricular activity.[1] Studios are located on campus in the Student Memorial Center.

History[edit]

The Federal Communications Commission granted WIXQ's first license on January 25, 1978.[2]

On April 25, 2011, Millersville University filed a Notification of Suspension of Operations form with the FCC indicating that WIXQ would "go silent" on May 7, 2011.[3] The reason given was due to major construction of the Ganser Building, which would result in the station losing its transmitter site. The filing indicated that the station's antenna would be permanently moving to the Jefferson Building [on the school's campus]. On August 29, 2011, Millersville University filed a Resumption of Operations form with the FCC. The station resumed broadcasting at noon that day.[4]
