Radiothon is the main fundraiser for the student-managed and fiscally independent radio station. Last year, the station used donations to revamp its broadcasting room and replace outdated equipment. This year, the WNTH board hopes to create a new studio that students can use to record live interviews with performing artists and create demos for performers within and outside the New Trier community.
