Harry Potter (during Lord Voldemort's regime)

The Wizarding Wireless Network (usually abbreviated to WWN), was a popular generalist wizarding wireless station. It features music programmes, such as Witching Hour[2] (hosted by Glenda Chittock),[3] interactive programmes like Toots, Shoots 'n' Roots[4] (hosted by Tilden Toots)[4] and news bulletins like The Wizarding Wireless Network News.[5] Most wizard-born children grew up listening to the station.[6]

The radio station is based in Hogsmeade Village, the only all-wizard settlement in Great Britain.[1]

Celestina Warbeck, a popular singer among middle aged people is often featured on the Wizarding Wireless Network, on the show Witching Hour.[2] One of the most popular musical group among teenagers, The Weird Sisters were featured on this station too.[6]

History

1995

"Security has been and will remain the Ministry's top priority. Furthermore, we have convincing evidence that these disappearances are the work of notorious mass murderer Sirius Black."
Cornelius Fudge[src]

In 1995, Cornelius Fudge, still denying the rebirth of Lord Voldemort, gave interviews to the Wizarding Wireless Network regarding the disappearances of several witches and wizards. Sirius Black was blamed for the happenings.[7]

1997—1998

"But before we hear from Royal and Romulus let's take a moment to report those deaths that the Wizarding Wireless Network News and Daily Prophet don't think important enough to mention. It is with great regret that we inform our listeners of the murders of Ted Tonks and Dirk Cresswell."
Lee Jordan, hosting the revolutionary Potterwatch[src]

The Ministry of Magic was taken over by Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters on 1 August, 1997. As such, the Wizarding Wireless Network news broadcasts stopped reporting murders by the Death Eaters and the Snatchers.[5]
