As you may know, I am a college student at Rowan Univeristy studying radio broadcasting. I have been a DJ on Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS (750 watts of fun!) since November 2015. I host my weekly friday night show called "The Vinyl Frontier" and do our daytime programme when I'm needed to fill in for others who can't make it. During 7am-5pm, we are ran just like any other major commerical station, pre-picked classic hits from the 70s-2000s. At night is when things get fun.
Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS-FM was named one of three national finalists for Station of the Year in College Media Association’s Pinnacle Awards competition on Friday.
WGLS-FM joins campus radio stations from Marshall University and West Virginia University as the competition’s other finalists for top four-year college radio station. Rowan Radio was last named a finalist for the same award in 2013.
The Four-Year Radio Station of the Year Award reflects achievement in news and entertainment programming.
The winner will be announced during the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Association’s annual convention in Dallas beginning on October 25. The Pinnacle Awards honor the best collegiate work in print, broadcast, and online media.
Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS-FM has won 285 regional and national awards since 1993.
I'm extremely proud to be part of such a recognized radio station, and try to do the absolute best I can each time I go on air. Myself and every other DJ on Rowan Radio are some of the best people I have ever met, and are all incredibly talented on--air hosts and deserve every award we get.
Bragging is now complete.
