WUIN (106.7 FM), known as "The Penguin", is an Adult Album Alternative radio station licensed to Wilmington, North Carolina. The station features a broad variety of styles including reggae, blues, jazz, Americana, rock, soul and hip-hop.
On August 18, 2003, WUIN joined WPPG and became "The Penguin," described as "a different kind of bird" that played "the music you've been waiting for." For the next 2 years the station introduced an eclectic mix to its listeners. In late August of 2005, the Program Director and Music Director were relieved of there duties, leaving many to speculate about the future of The Penguin. Within a month Sea-Comm Media had replaced the veteran programmers with Beau Gunn, an untested, but music savvy 23 year old with no radio programming experience. The move payed dividends, as WUIN enjoyed the highest ratings since its inception. In this eclectic, independently programmed format, listeners will hear deep cut classics from the past, to new cutting edge musicians. Bluegrass, Jam, Rock, Folk, Hip-Hop, and Americana are all fair game. If its good music, it will get played. The Penguin celebrated its 5th Birthday Celebration with a concert at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater. Fans of the radio station enjoyed a sold-out concert by Tift Merritt and Chatham County Line.
