WEIU CELEBRATES 30 YEARS!!!
WEIU began a year-long celebration on July 1, in commemoration of its 30th anniversary on air for radio and television broadcast!

WEIU broadcast radio 88.9 was introduced on July 1, 1985, and WEIU-TV began broadcast operations on UHF 51 on July 1, 1986, as a non-commercial, educational television station licensed to the Board of Trustees of EIU. "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome live, to the campus of Eastern Illinois University." With that introduction, Daniel Thornburgh, then the director of University Relations, christened WEIU-TV during its live on-air dedication.

Join us in celebrating 30 remarkable years of serving the university and our surrounding communities. Thank you for supporting WEIU as your public broadcasting station.
