Happy College Radio Day!
Founded in December 2010, College Radio Day is an annual, non-profit event aimed at raising awareness of college radio and celebrating the important creative contribution of college radio to American media. By promoting the event nationwide, both online and on the airwaves of over 350 registered stations, the hope is that people who may not normally listen to college radio will tune in today and like what they hear enough to become regular listeners.
As the organizers of College Radio Day say, “College radio is one of the last remaining bastions of creative radio programming, free from the constrictions of having to be commercially viable, and a place where those involved in its programming believe passionately in its mission… together, for one day, we can lift the national profile of an important form of North American media: college radio.” KRUI is proud to be a part of this great event!
