College and Community Radio Under Attack

This week on “Radio On!” Sophie Hess and Katie Thornton investigate threats to college and community radio, discussing corporate consolidation of media, College Radio Day, and the platforms that stations like WOBC provide. The show features an interview with WOBC’s faculty advisor, Tom Lopez, originally broadcast on College Radio Day 2011, and a live phone interview with DJ and youth coordinator Zach McCormick of University of Minnesota’s Radio K.

Listen to the show: Radio On! 3/12/12

Tune in to “Radio On!” every Monday from 6:00-6:30pm on WOBC 91.5FM.

 

What is Community Radio?

This Spring, WOBC is hosting an Experimental College class (ExCo) on community media. The class is studying various community media models as they exist in theory and practice.

This class collaboratively produces a weekly half-hour public affairs show called “Radio On!” to share our research and discussion, and expand WOBC’s network of interconnectivity as a community media outlet. The show airs on Mondays from 6:00 to 6:30pm here on WOBC, 91.5FM in Lorain County and on this website.

Ryan Caruso and Veronica Burnham created this week’s show, which looks at different community radio models around the country, including Neighborhood Public Radio and the Prometheus Radio Project.
