WZIS-FM (The Monkey) was formerly WMHD-FM, the student radio station at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana. The broadcast studio was located on campus in the basement of the Baur-Sames Bogart Residence Hall, while the antenna was located across the Wabash in West Terre Haute, Indiana.

The staff consisted of many dedicated volunteers which include undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty and staff.[1]

In 2013, WMHD ceased broadcasting over the air, but continued to stream programming via the Internet. In 2014, Rose-Hulman sold the broadcast assets of WMHD to Indiana State University.[2] The sale, at a price of $16,465, was consummated on August 15, 2014. Previously, on August 8, 2014, the station changed its call sign to the current WZIS-FM.

Programming[edit]

The Monkey broadcast a variety of music, which was chosen by the disc jockey or the Unattended Broadcasting System software written by Rose-Hulman student, Christ Humbert.[3] Because there was no prescribed format, it was very common to hear punk, bluegrass, and electronica all in a single broadcast day.
