PROMOTIONS AT WLUW 88.7fm
Becoming the Promotions Director at my college radio station was not only a large part of my undergraduate experience but the first step in a career focused in integrated marketing communications. Broadcasting in a top 3 DMA, WLUW 88.7fm Chicago Sound Alliance retains around 40K terrestrial listeners and 10K online listeners. With over 200 Disc Jockeys, made up of community members and students, WLUW brings the best of the Chicago independent music scene to the surface.
From co-promoting local shows to DIY parties, WLUW knows what’s up and coming in the scene. Others seem to take notice too!
