The new transmitter.

WVPH (90.3 FM, "The Core") is Piscataway, New Jersey's community and student-run radio station.

It is a broadcasting agreement between the former WRLC AM station from Rutgers, Livingston College and WVPH-FM from Piscataway High School. The two institutions combined forces in 1977 to create an educational opportunity and provide an outlet for both entertainment and information. This radio station is self-governed with help from the two schools and the community.[1]

WVPH's transmitter is now located on a communications tower on the Livingston campus of Rutgers University. It was previously located on the roof of Piscataway High School. The transmitter was moved on October 6, 2007, following a day of stunting that led up to the transmitter move. The new coverage area reaches over 85% more people than the old coverage area.[2]

In 2009, The Core conducted a live three-day broadcast from the All Points West Festival in Jersey City, New Jersey. DJs facilitated interviews and organized performances in the facility.[citation needed]
