WSCL and WSDL are owned and operated as a service to the people of Delmarva by the Salisbury University Foundation, Inc. The mission of Public Radio Delmarva is to provide for the people of Delmarva a quality program service that educates, informs, and entertains in ways that meet their particular needs. Salisbury University provided the initial impetus for WSCL in the late 1980's. Dr. Thom Bellavance, then President of Salisbury State University, was a prime mover in the effort to bring public radio to Delmarva as part of the University's community service. An agreement between the University and Foundation established the roles of each institution in the establishment of WSCL. The station broadcast its first program, a recording of a performance of the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, in May, 1987. Today, the Foundation continues to hold the station licenses and remains the governing body for Public Radio Delmarva. Salisbury University continues to be the primary in-kind supporter of WSCL and WSDL, providing physical facilities for studios and offices, as well as personnel support. The stations also serve as a professional laboratory for students in the University's Communication Arts program.
