WRST-FM at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is joining college radio stations around the state and throughout the U.S. and Canada in participating in the first “College Radio Day” on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
This event is held to raise awareness of college radio and to urge the public to sample the creative spirit of these student-run broadcast stations.
As part of its participation, WRST will be airing a special program called “College Radio: Its Past, Present and Future,” completely produced at college radio stations. The program will be heard over WRST-FM (90.3) and online at wrst.org. It airs at 4:20 p.m on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
WRST-FM has been operating since 1966, offering listeners an alternative program schedule featuring a variety of music genres along with local news, talk and sports. The programs are produced by UW Oshkosh students, many of whom are majors in the university’s Radio TV Film program. WRST alumni can be found in media careers throughout the U.S.
WRST-FM airs local programs from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. daily and airs Wisconsin Public Radio Ideas Network offerings at other times.
