The first radio broadcasts from campus were agricultural programs sponsored by the Cooperative Extension Services. These were broadcast live over telephone lines to WHEB in Portsmouth. In 1930, a radio station was constructed on the third floor of Thompson Hall and students from the Speech and Drama Department formed the Mike and Dial Club, producing live dramatic plays and a variety of other shows. In 1952, a new transmitter allowed the campus to send radio signals through electrical lines on campus and WMDR was born. In 1958, the station moved into the newly-constructed Memorial Union Building. In 1962, they applied for an FM license and began WUNH.
