Loyola Radio Station Moves Downtown

"Downtown, things'll be great when you're downtown..." (Petula Clark's 1965 hit)For WLUW these lyrics stand for a fresh start

September, 2009--Turning on a radio might be easily forgotten, but not so when Petula Clark was heard loud and clear around noon yesterday from WLUW-FM’s new location in the Terry Student Center at Baumhart Hall.

Donald Heider, the School of Communication Dean, is one of many who  made the transition possible.  “The station is moving back to the Water Tower campus where it started.  It was particularly poignant to see Professor Sam Danna there.  Without his efforts 30 years ago, there would be no WLUW.”

Minutes prior to the switch, volunteer deejays and staff from WLUW and Loyola faculty gathered to witness the birth of something they had all worked on for more than a year.

The new station is equipped with the latest and best equipment that is commonly used in commercial stations, providing Loyola students with exceptional opportunities. Most of what was used at the Lake Shore campus was at least 20 years old.

For Station Manager Danielle Basci this moment was especially important. “I’ve been inside several radio stations and I’ve never seen better equipment in my life than what WLUW has now.  I am so glad Loyola gave us the opportunity to build this world class facility.”

Deejay Andy Ryer was the last to broadcast from Lake Shore.  While he is sad to leave that location due to its lived-in feel, like many involved at the station he anticipates new beginnings downtown.
