Established in 1946, WOON is Woonsocket's first radio station and carries through, to the present day, the tradition of professionalism established by our founders.
We are the market's only full-time, full power broadcast service, on the air 24 hours every day.
Our non-directional signal reaches some 90,000 homes, with an estimated 267,000 population (1990 Census.) Of that area, we specialize in serving the Northern Rhode Island communities of WOONSOCKET, NORTH SMITHFIELD, CUMBERLAND, LINCOLN, BURRILLVILLE, and the Massachusetts communities of BELLINGHAM, BLACKSTONE, MILLVILLE, UXBRIDGE, FRANKLIN, and a portion of WRENTHAM.
Many radio signals cover this region but WOON's programming is so intensely localized, we give our local area attention to local detail, at rates the larger stations could never offer.
WOON operates a news van that is full-time staffed and radio equipped, delivering on-the-spot live local news.
We are a full-service station, sponsoring local charity drives too numerous to mention. Our staff are members of Rotary, Kiwanis, Elks, Jaycees and other local community betterment organizations.WOON is a positive, traditional, and more youthful AM station. We naturally attract people like us, generally 25-54 years old, who are a bit more up-scale, since positive thinking people tend to think well of themselves and have better earning power.
