Medgar Evers College Radio is a community outreach facility representing diverse voices within the college and surrounding community.
The college radio studio was established in the early seventies by the late Dr. Mary Umolu who used donated equipment from the Model Cities Program and awarded grants to get the radio studio up and going.
After the launch of MEC Radio, the community outreach facility aired on WNYE-FM, in the seventies, which was under the Board of Education, broadcasting through-out tri-state area.
In 2004, WNYE-FM was transferred from the Board of Education to the New York City (NYC) Media; which comprised both WNYE-FM and WNYE-TV operations.
MEC Radio seeks to broaden and empower its listeners by providing cultural programming that reflects the interests of the community it represents.
