“Wait, we have our own student-run radio station?” Lindsey-Paige McCloy ’12 gets that question a lot.
The answer? Actually, yeah, we do. Tune your radio dial (if you still own one) to WPRB (103.3 FM) and you may hear that guy in your precept reading the local headlines.
WPRB began broadcasting over 60 years ago from the radiator pipes in this guy‘s dorm room in Holder. Now their multi-room station is located in the basement of Bloomberg, equipped with turntables, LP archives, and a broadcast center. This unique operation is completely student-run and not affiliated with the University, with McCloy as their station manager and James Corran ’13 as the program director.
With music, news, sports, and DJs from on and off-campus, WPRB’s broadcasts can be heard from New York to Philadelphia.
