WNDV-FM (92.9 FM, "U93") is a radio station broadcasting a Hot Adult Contemporary format. The station serves the South Bend, Indiana area. The station is currently owned by Sound Management, LLC.[1]

WNDV-FM formerly used the call letters WNDU-FM (for Notre Dame University), but had to change the call letters when sold by the university in 1998 to Artistic Media Partners.[2]

The station was the market's heritage Top 40 (CHR) station, but has evolved into an adult-leaning Top 40 (CHR), and later into a full blown Hot AC format. Unlike most Top 40/CHR and Hot AC formatted stations, U93 leans Modern AC and also includes current alternative/modern rock in its music mix.

Sound Management purchased WNDV-FM, along with sister stations WSMM and WSSM, for $3.5 million; the purchase closed on April 16, 2015.

WNDV-FM is not licensed to broadcast a digital HD signal.[3]
