WONY is the college radio station of the SUNY Oneonta. It was founded in 1962 and membership consists of over 80 students, faculty, and members of the community. It broadcasts at 180 watts on 90.9 FM and an internet webcast.


WONY is located on the State University of New York College At Oneonta campus. WONY's antenna latitude is 42.452N and longitude is 75.064W. The studios are located on the ground floor of Alumni Hall, behind the University Police and underneath the Admissions Office. The main control room of the station ("Studio A") contains the essential on-air equipment: the console, three microphones, two CD players, a minidisc player, one turntable, a computer, and four auxiliary cables to connect to DJs' laptops, MP3 players, and phones. Also in Studio A are the various rotations and the main engineering rack. The Music Library houses WONY's collection - at last approximation, it exceeded 12,000 CDs. The Library also doubles as a guest studio, as it is equipped with eight microphone jacks and a headphone amplifier. This is where live bands play when performing on-air. As of April 2013, "Studio B" is now being used to record News and Station ID's. The second News Studio ("Studio C"), which was outfitted as a small recording space, is now the Operations Director's workspace, as well as a storage space. Studio B contains an Alesis mixer, a Shure SM7B microphone, and a customized computer. The news is recorded into WAV format using Adobe Audition software. The Operations room houses WONY's important documents, miscellaneous equipment, and webcasting server. The Music Office is a place for the genre directors to work. CDs are sorted and reviewed here, using the station's Macintosh G3. The Sparaco Lounge is a place for DJs and guests to relax. It is named after the first General Manager of WONY, Mr. Gary Sparaco.
