WAPS (91.3 FM, "The Summit") is an American non-commercial radio station serving in and licensed to Akron, Ohio. WAPS first signed on in September 1955, ... See more part of a state-wide educational broadcasting initiative which saw the launch of many school system-licensed radio stations across Ohio. From 1955 through the early 1980’s, WAPS served as a “radio classroom” service, operating only during school days and offering instructional radio programs that teachers could use in their classrooms.The station is owned and operated by the Akron Public Schools system and airs an Adult album alternative (AAA) format Monday through Saturday, including NPR's World Cafe on weekday mornings. On Sundays, specialty programs air, including a block of nationality programming in foreign languages. In February of 2009, WAPS began airing Found Sound, a new music hour that is currently on every Saturday at 9 pm. The station broadcasts worldwide via streaming audio from the station website at www.thesummit.fm. It strives to offer programming not heard on the more traditional public radio stations from Kent, Cleveland or Youngstown and avoids duplicating programs found on other regional public radio stations. Nearly 90% of its programming is produced locally.The station's programming is simulcast Sunday through Friday in the Youngstown area via the facilities of Struthers High School station WKTL (90.7 FM).
