WUIS is a member station of both NPR and also regularly broadcasts programs and specials from other sources. However, the station’s local information and music programming and statewide governmental news coverage have always been an integral part of its mission. WUIS originally hit the airwaves on January 3, 1975 as WSSR, operated by what was then Sangamon State University. It became WSSU in 1989, and adopted its current calls when Sangamon State merged with the University of Illinois system in 1995.
