WMUB is a public radio station licensed to Miami University, in Oxford, Ohio. It produced local programming for 59 years until March 1, 2009 when it became a part of Cincinnati Public Radio. The station serves Southwest Ohio and Southeast Indiana. WMUB started as a student-operated station the 1940s and turned FM in 1950. Once known for its “Rhythm and News”, it is now a full-time satellite of WVXU in Cincinnati. It primarily serves areas north of Cincinnati where the main WVXU signal is weak. In January 2009, Miami announced that it was turning operation of the station over to Cincinnati Public Radio effective March 1, 2009. Seven people lost their jobs due to this change.
