Welcome to WFNP Radio @ SUNY New Paltz!
WFNP will sign on Thursday, February 1st for the Spring 2024 semester. We are already training new DJs and hosts for our team, and invite you to get in touch if you too are interested in hosting a show, writing/reporting news, providing concert or album reviews, learning how to engineer, or volunteering at our campus and community events.

WFNP & ‘The Big 88’ – November 2023
WFNP participated in the inaugural “The Big 88” Broadcast. On November 8th, several stations in the tri-state area joined forces to create “New York’s Largest Radio Station” for one day only. From 12pm to 7pm, each participating station had time to talk about their programming, feature student DJs and broadcast on “The Big 88′ in celebration of college radio.
