The last time UNCW's Hawkstream Radio was on the air was 2008.
WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - You don't have to be near UNCW to tune in as Hawkstream Radio takes flight again.
The radio station is not new to the area, but its time on the air has not been very stable. It has been on and off over the years, and the last time it was on air was 2008.
One senior at the school spent the past year preparing everything so the station can hopefully start up again next week.
"It is something that has definitely come and gone over the years," said Matt Heiniger. "That's why I took the initiative to prove to the school that this time will be different and I think that so far to this point we have made a lot of progress."
He says they hope to have it online by Thursday, Jan. 31 and then over the airwaves sometime soon after that.
