WNAS (88.1 FM) has been broadcasting live since May 1949. It was the first FM student-run high school radio station to be licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). WNAS is the student-run high school radio station of New Albany High School and Floyd Central High School in southern Indiana. The station's call letters reflect the ownership by the New Albany Floyd County School Corporation. In 1980, the corporation also began broadcasting WNAS-TV.
Jerry Weaver served as the general manager from 1960 to 1969, followed later by Lee Kelly who held this post from 1973 to 2013. Jason Flener, former assistant principal for NAHS, and a former WNAS student staff member, replaced Kelly beginning in the 2013–2014 school year.
Recently,[when?] Floyd Central completed entire renovations of its TV and radio studios. These studios are considered by many local TV and radio personalities to be better than their own. Sarah Jordan of 99.7 WDJX even told students at Floyd Central, "Become a part of the Radio/TV program because the stuff you all are using is a lot better than what I have."
WNAS can be picked up throughout all of the Louisville metropolitan area and is known for its eclectic programming. The station broadcasts music 24 hours a day, when not covering covers boys and girls basketball, football, baseball, and volleyball for both New Albany and Floyd Central. The station provides streaming audio from its website.
