College Radio Watch: Arkansas Stations Form College Radio Organization, IBS Awards Announced, and More News

I had a wonderful time in Virginia last week and was able to see eight college radio stations. The reason for my trip, however, was a speaking engagement at the WTJU-hosted “College Radio: Then, Now, and Next” symposium at University of Virginia last Friday. I gave an overview of the history of college radio and also discussed where things stand in 2017. As you might guess, I’m very optimistic about the state of college radio today. Additionally, the entire panel of speakers and the audience had some engaging conversations, both pragmatic and philosophical. Most exciting of all, representatives from numerous Virginia-based college radio stations were able to meet up, forging connections for future conversations and possibly collaborations. Nothing makes me happier!
