WRTC.FM DJ Selects

WRTC FM 89.3 is a noncommercial radio station based right here on Trinity’s campus! Since 1947, the station has provided listeners with a wide range of music including rock, country, jazz, and everything in between with 60+ programs. The station consists of students and community volunteers with a passion for music that share their tunes with the Hartford area.  

Behind the scenes of the station is a student executive board that works to keep the station running. Whether it’s recruiting new students, creating merch for fundraisers, or putting on free concerts, the WRTC e-board works hard to establish WRTC as a key part of Trinity. Along with being hardworking, they also collectively have a diverse music taste and love to share their music with others. Here is a little bit about each DJ and three of their favorite songs they wanted to share with you.



One more thing…

Each year WRTC does a fundraiser to help keep the station going. All of our on-air hosts are volunteers, but there are many expenses. Much of our financial assistance has traditionally come from our loyal listeners and, more than ever, we rely on your backing to keep us on the air doing what we do best! We use your donations to continually improve our ability to produce quality, live, community-based radio, 24-hours-a-day, 365 days a year.

Please consider donating via our website https://wrtcfm.com/ or by calling in on (860) 297-2450. Thank you!
