2019 WASU Summer

WASU had a great summer participating in events around campus! Four staff members, Nate Saunders, Kiera Massi, Marnie Bonn, and Patrick Mullaney ran and worked to promote our station through participation in first-year orientation, high school station tours, and summer giveaways. Now, with the summer behind us, we are looking forward to a great school year and having all of our staff members and DJs back in the station!

We are looking forward to what the Spring semester brings. Stay tuned because it will be an exciting time to keep up with WASU!!

Appalachian State Wins the New Orleans Bowl!

As covered by the Charlotte Observer and Fox 8,

Appalachian State beat Middle Tennessee State in the New Orleans Bowl on the 15th. The final score was 45-13. Wide receiver Malik Williams threw two touchdown passes off of trick plays in the game among other fantastic plays by other teammates. It was an exciting game and after becoming Sun Belt Conference Champions back on the 1st of December, another amazing win has Mountaineer spirits soaring!
