WOI-FM (90.1 FM) is a radio station licensed to Ames, serving the greater Ames/Des Moines area. The station is owned by Iowa State University. WOI-FM is an affiliate of Iowa Public Radio, and carries IPR's "News and Studio One" service—a mix of National Public Radio news programming and adult alternative music.
WOI-FM first hit the airwaves on December 1, 1949. It was originally a full-time simulcast of WOI-AM. The two stations went their separate ways in the 1960s.
For most of the time since the formation of NPR, WOI-FM aired a mix of classical music and NPR news and talk programming, simulcasting many programs with its AM sister. Shortly after midnight on September 10, 2012, IPR switched WOI-FM's format to the News and Studio One service. The classical service moved to WOI-FM's second digital subcarrier. For those without HD Radio, classical music continues to be heard in portions of central Iowa on five full-power stations that between them cover most of the region.
