WGLT is licensed to Illinois State University and is affiliated with NPR. It was originally a student operated radio station, signing on the air on April 24th, 1962 as a closed circuit radio station. A few years later, on February 4, 1966, the station received FCC licensing and began FM boradcasting. The station became a full NPR member in the 1970's. Both the audio and paper records are unprocessed. In the past year, the university archivist and the station’s general manager (along with a School of Communication professor) started the process to inventory all the audio and paper records.
