Celebrating High School Radio Day

Happy High School Radio Day! Today marks the 6th Annual High School Radio Day and as I write this, 83 high school radio stations from 31 states plan to participate. I’m heartened that high school radio is going strong and hope that in 2017, I’ll be able to visit more high school radio stations. You may recall that last fall a new High School Radio Network launched, with live programs broadcast from high school radio stations all over the United States every Wednesday afternoon. Today’s show will air from KASB at Bellevue High School in Bellevue, Washington.

Have any favorite high school radio stations or do you do high school radio? I’d love to hear your stories in the comments. In the meantime, here are a few pieces that I’ve written about high school radio to get you into the spirit of the day:

    I am very happy to see High School Radio Day getting some great attention. What a day it was!! Just in our station alone we had our city mayor recognize us at the local city council meeting; we were visited by Jeff Dorian (a local professional radio personality) who did a live show with the kids; and we had some listeners come in to watch that live show through the studio window. and

    Soooo many listeners wished us a happy High School Radio Day! Sometimes it take a cool day like this to appreciate the tremendous support high school radio gets throughout the year! I want to personally thank Pete Bowers of WBFH 88.1 Bloomfield Hills High School — Bloomfield Hills, Michigan for creating this special day! THANK YOU PETE!!
