WHWS has a three-fold mission to serve to residents of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the residents of Geneva, New York, and the residents of the surrounding cities and towns in Ontario and Seneca counties.

First: to provide a broadcast service to the Hobart and William Smith community. Including increased availability for HWS Students to host an on-air show, a rock/alternative/eclectic format aimed at students during non-live DJ times, and additional newscasts and related special programming aimed at the HWS campus and community.  This includes outlets for live coverage of Hobart and William Smith sports events.

Second: to provide a Spanish-language program service, with music, news and information, relevant to the Latino community in and around Geneva.

Third: to provide a local news, music and information service of interest to the local Geneva community as a whole, and the surrounding communities as possible and appropriate.
