WCAL 91.9 FM is a student-run college radio station serving California University of Pennsylvania and the surrounding area, including Washington, Fayette, Westmoreland, Greene, and Allegheny counties. Like CUTV, WCAL is owned by The Student Association, Inc and broadcasts 24 hours per day from the Media Suite in the Natali Student Center on the California University of Pennsylvania campus. WCAL began broadcasting in 1971 from California State University as WVCS, which it continued broadcasting as until obtaining its new call-letters on March 15, 2005. WVCS stood for Voice of California State, which ceased to make sense after the school changed its name to California University of Pennsylvania in 1983. WCAL broadcasts as a freeform music station, with an immensely diverse variety of music. On February 1, 2005, the "WCAL" call sign was sold by Minnesota Public Radio (owners of KCMP, formerly known as WCAL) to the student-run radio station of California University of Pennsylvania.
