About Us

WMXM is a student-run radio station at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, IL. We started broadcasting as an FM station in 1975 and continue to bring independent music and other original programming to the airwaves today! As a free-form non-commercial station, WMXM offers a vibrant selection of diverse programming. Our goal as a station is to promote independent music, news, and culture. We want to give a voice to the uncommon and provide a unique and free listening experience that breathes new life into the idea of ‘college radio.’

We thank you for listening for 44 years!


WMXM is completely run by volunteers. Every person who works at the station gives up hours to help make the station the best it can be. If you would like to get involved please email our General Manager, Kim. We love to have students and community members alike involved in what we do. No matter how much time you have to give, WMXM has a place for you!
