College Radio News Round-Up

This week, I’m trying a new format for College Radio Watch. Since it’s been a few weeks since I’ve shared college radio news tidbits, the list is rather long. And College Radio Watch was also quite lengthy this week, so it seemed like it would be overwhelming to have both a long piece and a long list of articles. So…here’s a quick recap of the past few weeks in college radio news. Do you enjoy having these weekly college radio news recaps? Please let us know.
