Station History

92.9fm signed on in 1962.


On October 25, 1979, WNDU-FM flipped formats from a Hit Parade format to Top 40, as U93. Studios located at 237 Edison Road, Suite 93, Mishawaka, IN 46545-3137 (Telephone: 219.631.1616). WNDU became WNDV after Michiana Telecasting Corp. sold WNDU to Artistic Media Partners. In October 2014, Artistic Media Partners, Inc. sold WNDV, WSSM-FM and WSSM-FM for $3.5 million to Sound Management, LLC.
