We love college radio.

College stations are where the next generation of radio professionals experiment and grow. For many people, it’s where their passion for the medium is ignited.

College radio is also a place where students can be truly creative – because they’re not for profit, there’s no limit on what kind of programming students can make. When we design our equipment, we’re always thinking about how our technology can help broadcasters and other professionals create programming that seems impossible. College radio is fertile ground for the kind of exciting work that we love.

That’s why we’re a sponsor of College Radio Day! Today, on Friday, October 4th, we’re celebrating the college stations that use our equipment to learn, experiment, and make really cool stuff.
