College Radio Watch: CBI Student Production Awards Winners, WSOU Kudos and More News

Well, I’m back from my travels and am full of even more college radio wisdom thanks to both the College Broadcasters Inc. (CBI) conference and my numerous radio station tours. I’ll be recapping my trip to the CBI conference for Radio World in a forthcoming issue and will also share some tidbits from the event on a future Radio Survivor Podcast.

While in the Philadelphia-area, I visited four college radio stations, met up with the General Manager of another college radio station, and also toured brand new low power FM radio station PhillyCAM. It’s incredibly inspiring meeting other folks who are passionate about radio and it’s a big part of what I love about writing about radio culture.

While I sift through my backlog of station tours, here’s a quick recap of some of the recent college radio news that’s caught my eye.
