HISTORY

WNAA-FM was originally established in 1979 as a direct outgrowth of North Carolina A&T’s first radio station, WANT-AM, which was built in 1966 by electronics students (including current General Manager Tony Welborne) as a class project. WNAA operated from 1979 to 1985 as a local Greensboro station, serving the campus and small areas of the city with 10 watts of power. In 1985, the station was granted permission to upgrade to a full-power noncommercial FM stereo station. It is a great place for students to hone their radio broadcast, recording commercials and PSA writing skills. 

REACH
Currently, WNAA operates with 10,000 watts at 90.1 MHz on the FM and HD dial and has a licensed coverage area of 35 to 45 miles (56–64 km). The station experiences an actual coverage area of 35 to 55 miles (56–88 km) in most directions. WNAA is licensed to serve the Greensboro, High Point, and Winston-Salem metropolitan radio market. This area, coupled with the secondary coverage area, allows WNAA to cover a 14 county area in the northern Piedmont of North Carolina and even parts of southwestern Virginia.
