As I prepared for my visit to see KUSF-in-Exile (aka San Francisco Community Radio) on Sunday, I spent some time looking through our coverage of the whole KUSF saga. It’s been […]

2014: The Year that College Radio Embraced Low Power FM

This is incredible to see, as it is yet another sign that terrestrial radio is still relevant to young people. In addition […]

College Radio Watch: How Did College Radio Influence Your Career Path and More College Radio News

Working in college radio can influence one’s life in profound ways, even helping to shape one’s future career. Earlier this week I posted my Q&A with author Eric Weisbard.

College Radio Watch: KURE Must Move, KWCW GM Shares Advice When Facing FCC Violations and WESU Film Honors 75th Anniversary

I continue to be impressed by the number of colleges and universities who applied for new LPFM radio licenses in the fall 2013 window. As I wrote in LPFM Watch yesterday, in the past few weeks a handful of college radio stations were granted construction permits for new LPFMs. By my count, this brings the […]

College Radio Watch: Why I Tour College Radio Stations

I’ve written up 68 radio station tours since 2008 and have probably visited close to 100 stations total. Nearly 50 of those visits were to college radio stations all over the country (plus a few in Ireland). My goal has always been to spread the gospel of college radio to not only the masses, but […]

College Radio Watch: Protesting College Radio Takeovers + A Few New LPFM College Stations

As the end of the year approaches, I’m already starting to think about what the overarching themes of 2014 were for college radio. Like many recent years, it’s been a mix of good and bad news this year. The situation at Georgia State University’s WRAS-FM is a high profile example of public radio’s ongoing interest […]
