|This Day in Indiana History - Purdue University Broadcasting|
Experiments in radio broadcasting began at Purdue University around 1910. Work on the new medium continued with the addition of new radio equipment in 1920 and the opening of a radio class later that year. On April 4, 1922, the broadcast license for WBAA was granted. The Purdue radio station is the oldest continuously operating radio station in Indiana. The current 5,000 watt signal reaches a potential 2.5 million people.
