WNYO is a college radio station broadcasting from the State University of New York at Oswego in the City of Oswego, New York.[1][2] Broadcasting from the SUNY Oswego Marano Campus Center, WNYO broadcasts primarily Alternative, Rock, and Hip-Hop music throughout the day as well as a fair amount of talk and sports oriented programming. Additionally WNYO runs news segments, conducts interviews with artists, and plays syndicated NPR programs when students do not have shows. WNYO is a 24/7 radio station operated and managed by the students of SUNY Oswego.

WNYO also broadcasts Oswego State Lakers sporting events live for the City of Oswego and on the internet.

In 2011 WNYO moved from Simian Automation System to ENCO's DAD automation system. In 2018, WNYO renovated its studio in the Marano Campus Center. This renovation included a new main studio, two production studios, and keycard, 24-hour access door, making it a world class station in terms of equipment. WNYO began airing WRVO's Take Care on Sunday mornings[3] and has started uploading podcasts to YouTube[4] at this time as well.
