Welcome to WNYT Radio
Radio station WNYT was formed as New York Institute of Technology opened its Old Westbury campus in the mid-1960's, operating from studios located in Education Hall. The student-run station has alternately broadcasted on campus via carrier current and closed circuit connections, and during the '70s and early '80s served as the audio for Cablevision's on-screen program guide. Today WNYT is heard online, starting Internet-based programming in November 2004.
As a campus club, WNYT is supported by the Student Government Association with some additional funding coming from alumni and private donations. Its members take pride in their commitment to creating a professional environment where students can have a real-world "on-air" experience. They hold air shifts, learn production, handle engineering and enjoy an atmosphere that results in professional broadcasting careers and lifelong relationships.
Over the past four decades, WNYT has produced some of broadcasting's bright stars, with alumni serving as disc jokeys, newscasters, engineers, television anchors and professional voice-over artists. Among the station's former student members are Carol Silva '76, anchor, News 12 Long Island; Jim Douglas '82, morning personality, WKJY-FM; Donna Vaughan '86, '87, news director, WALK-FM; Tracy Burgess '88, news editor, WFAN; Dennis Falcone '79, Nationally syndicated program producer, Premiere Radio Networks; Mario Milito '83, Mid-day air personality, Q-104 Radio; Don Faithfull '80, engineer, WABC-TV; Frank DiMaulo '87, Audio engineer and editor, "As The World Turns"; Steve Singer '79, Audio Engineer, NBC-TV; and John Caracciolo, Vice president and general manager of The Morey Organization's Radio Group, to name only some of WNYT's success stories.
