With the holiday’s right around the corner, Rowan Radio is gearing up to make a big donation to the South Jersey Food Bank in Pennsauken, NJ. The station will be making an appearance at the Glassboro ShopRite on December 12th from 3 to 5 PM, where they will be collecting food items and broadcasting the event. Everyone is welcome to stop by and get involved!
In the next few days, I will also be posting a video detailing all of the preparations for the event, as well as interviews with Daytime Director, Alyssa Sansone and Assistant Promotions Director, Erica Milbourne. Stay tuned!
Tonight I will be joining Rowan Radio DJ Alyssa Sansone on the Wednesday night Microgroove from 6-9PM, a show which plays R&B and pop hits. I will be liveblogging from my Coveritlive account during the show, so feel free to send me or tweet the Rowan Radio account any song requests you may have! You can also tune in at 89.7FM, online, or on the mobile app. See you all there!
The annual CBI (College Broadcasters, Inc.) convention was nothing short of a success for Rowan Radio. The event, which was held from October 31st to November 2nd in San Antonio, Texas, draws media students from around the country hoping to be awarded for their hard work.
This year, Rowan Radio was nominated in three categories: Best Regularly Scheduled Program (“Saturday Night at the Oldies”, hosted by Rowan alum Matt Kazin), Best DJ (alum Allie Volpe, for her work on “The Indie Fix), and Best Documentary (“Heroin High”, produced by Allie Volpe, Joe Mineo, and Robert Zettlemoyer).
Winning in the latter category, the radio documentary about drug culture in South Jersey high schools beat out finalist entries from the Savannah College of Art & Design, Columbia College, and The American University in Cairo.
Besides “Heroin High”, Volpe and Kazin also made national finalists for their individual work.
Some other big winners at the convention included University of Southern Indiana’s “The Edge” for Best Promo, Ithaca College’s 92 WICB for Best News Reporting, and Illinois State University’s 103.3 WZND Fused Radio for Best PSA.
There were over 700 entries in this year’s competition.
