Today is the 7th Annual World College Radio Day, an event that celebrates the unique medium of college radio.
If you’re not on campus, it’s easy to forget what college radio can do. But thousands of future broadcasters learn their craft through their high school and college stations. This medium excites young people about working in radio in the future.
Plus, college radio fosters community by sharing campus information and creating a platform for local, independent music that would never be played anywhere else. Because they’re freed from the need to be profitable, college radio stations can take risks and be truly creative with their programming.
We’re proud to be a sponsor for this event, and to raise awareness about what college radio can do.
