WUNH was nominated for three CMJ awards this year! As a whole, the station was nominated for the Biggest Improvement and Digital Leader awards. Music Director Sean Riley (pictured above) was nominated for the Will Never Sell Out award. Perhaps the highlight of WUNH's week was seeing Sean in the Music Directors Summit Panel on College Day at CMJ. Topics covered during the panel included professionalism and ethics in college radio, consistent communication with coworkers, and sticking to your station's goals and philosophy. Congratulations to Sean for representing The Freewaves so well!

Monday Night Jazz is finding its way back to its roots through the likes of Charles Mingus, Stanley Clarke, and the new DJ spinning it all.
Having gone through a slur of DJs in recent years with their own unique feelings about what truly great jazz sounds like, will this young DJ live up to the name? We sure think so.
