WILN was formed with help by Ruth Yates.
WILN was changed to WZND on March 28th, 1981. "The Sound” was located in Cook Hall. The new WZND offered progressive rock-new wave sound and also soul and aired performances by local night spot bands and soul and jazz sessions. WZND was on the air from 7am-1am. WZND began broadcasting on Bloomington-Normal cable, increasing audience by 5,000-10,000 people!
WZND drops “The Sound” and becomes “Cable’s Hot Music FM, The New WZND”.
The mission of WZND is to provide practical experience and training for all ISU students interested in the radio broadcasting industry and related industries and to provide a radio broadcast cable programming service to the ISU student body and citizens of Bloomington/Normal and listeners of the World Wide Web.
