WZRD 88.3 FM "the Wizard" is the student-run radio station at Northeastern Illinois University since 1974.

Tune into 88.3 FM on your radio dial or stream the station live.

The Wizard is Chicago's only freeform radio station. Freeform radio means that you can hear any type of music, along with a variety of news and educational content whenever you turn us on, day or night.

At any given moment you could be introduced to something new and exciting, wild and weird, and sometimes even nice and familiar! We always say, if you don't like what you're hearing right now, change the dial, but tune in five minutes later and you'll hear something TOTALLY different, and you might just love it!

Also, tune in for:

Democracy Now!: Mon.-Fri., 8-9 a.m.

Thursday Night Live: Every Thursday night at approximately 10 p.m. WZRD welcomes a new live band to the station to play a set. In true freeform fashion, artists of all types can be heard — bluegrass, hip hop, experimental, indie rock, local bands, touring bands, etc. You never know who you’ll hear on the Wizard.

CALLING ALL FUTURE WIZARDS!:

WZRD is always accepting applications and training new student members. The station is located adjacent to the student lounge, below the bookstore on the NEIU Main Campus.
