Public Broadcasting at UW System

The UW System Board of Regents holds the broadcast licenses for 14 noncommercial educational broadcast stations located on UW Campuses throughout Wisconsin-13 radio and one television. (Seven of the radio stations are Wisconsin Public Radio affiliates, and WHA-TV is affiliated with Wisconsin Public Television .) UW stations are staffed with faculty, academic staff, and students. The stations not only produce and broadcast programs of educational and public service value to their listening and viewing communities, but they also serve as academic learning laboratories for UW journalism and mass communication students.

As the licensee, the Board of Regents is accountable to the FCC for compliance with all statutory and regulatory requirements. The Office of the Senior Vice President for Administration and Fiscal Affairs oversees regulatory compliance for the Board of Regents.
