WIKD-LP (99.1 FM, "EaglesFM") is the campus radio station of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in the U.S. state of Florida. The station broadcasts in the Daytona Beach area. As a LPFM, the output range of EaglesFM is is about five miles from the school. The station is non-profit and does not have a fixed format.

EaglesFM Campus Radio started out as a broadcast club in 1993 broadcasting out of a closet in McKay Hall with a party DJ board and two CD players on AM carrier current. It later moved into the Student Government Association (SGA) office in the Student Center. With upgraded facilities, it was broadcast as WERU on 104.7 radiating cable FM. After many years of trails and tribulations from previous Chairmen, WERU 104.7FM had finally applied for an LPFM license in 2002 by SGA President, Peter Alverez, and ERAU Chairmen, Patrick "Nacho" Mudge. Shortly after application, "Nacho" left Embry-Riddle to be soon followed by Greg Huston. Huston then had the ball in his court to carry out LPFM. Beginning in 2005, EaglesFM started using broadcast quality equipment with streaming internet broadcasting, campus speakers, and Radiating Cable FM to supplement the Low Power FM broadcast. It operates as a division of the Student Government Association.
