WXVU is a student-run college radio station at Villanova University in Villanova, PA. WXVU went on the air in 1991 when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) granted an educational license to Villanova University.
Previously, the station operated on carrier current, and could only be heard in selected buildings on campus. In 1992 the University constructed new studios in Dougherty Hall which allowed us to convert to FM stereo. Because bandwidth is limited in a crowded market like Philadelphia, we share our frequency with Cabrini College.
WXVU broadcasts Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday through 12 PM at 89.1 on your FM dial as part of our timeshare with Cabrini College's WYBF. Our signal serves the Main Line area of suburban Philadelphia, including Radnor, Lower Merion, Upper Merion, Newtown, Plymouth, Haverford, Easttown, Tredyffrin, and Conshohocken.
