WMUK, Western Michigan University's WeVote and the Institute of Government and Politics are co-sponsoring a candidate forum for Kalamazoo City Commission. 

It will be held at Schneider Hall at Western Michigan University on Tuesday October 1, 2019. It will begin at 7:00p.m. and will run for about one hour. 

WMUK 102.1 FM is excited to expand our national and international news programs during the Monday – Thursday schedule starting Monday, January 7, 2019. The goal of this change is to offer local news and information at more convenient listening times throughout our national and global news broadcasts.

WMUK's news department has been recognized by Public Radio News Director's Inc. At PRNDI's annual meeting in Philadelphia on June 22-23, 2018, WMUK received four national awards in Division B for stations with four-to-seven full-time news personnel for programs produced in 2017.

Early in 2012, a promising young journalist joined WMUK's local news team pretty much straight out of college. In the six years since then, Rebecca Thiele has become the producer and host of Arts & More, our weekly look at arts and culture in southwest Michigan, and WMUK's "beat" reporter covering the environment, science, and technology. Sadly, we must now bid her farewell.

We're back on the air! So are our streaming services for WMUK-1, WMUK-2 and Park & Westnedge. Power has returned to all of the Kalamazoo campus of Western Michigan University as well, where we are housed. Classes are delayed until 10 a.m., however. And Consumers Energy continues to work on power outages elsewhere in the city.
