About Us


WMUC Radio News is a student-run, weekly FM radio-news program. We are an extension of WMUC 88.1 FM College Park, the University of Maryland’s free-form radio station.

Weekly Roundup is our flagship news show, featuring original reporting on the top campus, local and DMV area news. Weekly Roundup airs live at 6:00 p.m. on Mondays.

Drop the Pop is our featured talk show focusing on the intersection of pop culture and politics, health and social issues both on campus and nationally. Drop the Pop airs live at 7:00 p.m. on Mondays. 

Weekly Rundown is the newest addition to WMUC Radio News programming. This WMUC Sports collaboration recaps the week’s biggest sports moments from your Maryland Terrapins. Weekly Rundown airs live at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays.

WMUC Radio News has been a staple of WMUC for decades. Although the individual shows themselves have changed over the years, WMUC Radio News has and will continue to cover the news you need to know from the University of Maryland and beyond.

Our slogan, “Updated News on an Outdated Platform,” pays homage to the ever changing news environment, and the consistency with which FM news programs have always upheld.

WMUC Radio News staff have gone on to work in journalism and news industry jobs, including the Baltimore Sun, Late Night with Seth Meyers and other local and national news organizations.
