Spinnaker Radio is the student-run radio station at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida. We broadcast over the air as WSKR-LP 95.5 FM, online at SpinnakerRadio.com, and via the campus cable TV system on channel 171. Our mission is to provide a hands-on authentic broadcast experience for students interested in a media career, and to provide original and entertaining programming for our university students and the surrounding community.
We run a music-intensive format, featuring college indie alternative rock as our primary format. Our live DJ hours are 10am-6pm; outside of live hours we air pre-recorded specialty programs or automated content. All of our DJs are volunteers, and all of our specialty programming is student-generated. In addition to music programming, we also offer Live DJ services for events.
The station began in 1993 with the UNF Broadcasting Association, and in 2001 launched their online stream as Osprey Radio. In 2013, the station was rebranded to Spinnaker Radio, in keeping with the consolidated student media operations of Spinnaker Media. In late 2013, Spinnaker Radio received approval to install a low-power FM transmitter (LPFM). In 2014, Spinnaker Radio launched their over-the-air broadcast operations.
Our studio and offices are located on the UNF campus in the Student Union, Bldg. 58E, room 2200. We can be reached at (904) 620-2908, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our office hours are M-F 12pm-5pm.
