FM91, WFHU, Freed-Hardeman University and Henderson community radio station is now available online, according to station manager Ron Means. The station has partnered with iHeart Radio to stream live programming 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“Everyone,” Means said, “can now hear the voice of Freed-Hardeman University and Henderson/Chester County live on their home or office computer.” An iHeart Radio app for FM91 is also available to stream directly to your smartphone.
Listeners may tune in by going to the station webpage at fhu.edu/fm91 and clicking on the Listen Live with iHeart Radio link. The page also has a link to download the app for the smartphone.
In addition to a mix of adult contemporary music, the 10,000 watt non-commercial FM station offers coverage of selected Freed-Hardeman University and Chester County sports events. As the only radio station in Chester County, it also seeks to provide community coverage.
The station, which trains students interested in communication, began broadcasting Aug. 23, 1967 with a 10-watt signal. In 1999, it began 24-hour operation at 10,500 watts. At that time, the station reached 11 counties in Southwest Tennessee and Northeast Mississippi. Now it can be heard virtually anywhere via traditional broadcasting, computer, or smartphone.
