Harper College Radio/Media
88.3FM WHCM Harper College Media is a broadcast radio station and multi-media hub run by the students at Harper College.
We are part of the Liberal Arts Division but we are a campus Student Organization open to all students. Our mission is to create and share great media and experiential learning opportunities for students and the community.
We are a “free form” radio station, meaning that students direct the work of the station and play and produce the music, news, talk, social media and other coverage that matters to them.
