WPRK History
1952-President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower was one of the first voices heard on WPRK when the station began broadcasting Dec. 8, 1952. In a dedication speech he recorded for the opening, Eisenhower, a former college president who supported campus radio, said the new station "can help to speed and advance the great ideas that keep great men and women free." Its original programming included works from conservatory students, recorded recitals, announcement of student chores, student debates and religious services from Knowles Memorial Chapel. In 1954, power was upgraded to a 250-watt transmitter and a new antenna was erected on the old Mills Library.
