The Northfield Mount Hermon Private school was founded in 1879 by Mr. Dwight Lyman Moody. He was an evangelist, missionary and writer. It's most famous student was probably Lee de Forest. Though he was born in Iowa, he received his early education at Mt. Hermon School, near Northfield, Mass. He paid some of his tuition with income from his early mechanical patents. He once wrote of his time there:
"...Hermon discipline taught me to surmount things of this character, and the results are becoming apparent."It has been reported that theri tower and antenna are already gone from the campus. This is no surprise as the station has been off air for approximately a year. The station used the brand "Hogger radio" and broadcast 24 hours a day to it's campus and to webcast. It had both student and faculty DJs. Also notable that the "Radio One" satellite service still filled it's overnights and weekends.
