SU Radio to return with new staff, programs

A resurgence of SU Radio – with a new staff and new programs is in the works this semester.

SU Radio is the student Internet radio station at Winston-Salem State. In 2009, the station was taken off the air for an FCC violation.

The station returned Sept. 26, 2010.

"In prior years, it felt like the staff didn't take the station as serious as they should have," said Caneisha Smith, a junior mass communications major from Woodbridge, Va.  

"This year we are going to be more professional."        

In 2010, the operation manager of WSNC-FM Ben Donnolley, prepared a policies and procedures handbook for SU Radio. WSNC-FM is a NPR affiliated public radio station broadcasting jazz from campus.

WSNC-FM's station offices are in Hall-Patterson.

Training for the new staff began earlier this month by E-Board members: La'Tia Johnson, Chalae Mills, Dion Curtis, and Caneisha Smith.

The new SU staffers are being taught how to use the station's new switch board and the software used for recording and editing.

Since the end of spring semester, the station has been playing music and PSA's.

SU's new programs are scheduled to be on air Sept. 26, in time for homecoming.  

The new lineup will include sports broadcasts and various music genres including old school, hip-hop and new school.

"We plan to do actual live stream in the cafeteria and broadcast from the Breezeway," said Mills, senior mass communications major from Monroe, N.C.   

SU Radio is also seeking writers and actors for a new weekly soap opera they are developing.

Along with new programs and live remotes, the station now has a dedicated phone line so listeners can call in during shows.  

SU Radio is streamed on the Internet and can only be heard on line on campus.

 But that may change also.

"There's a strong possibility that once things get up and running, we will air off campus," said Elvin Jenkins, SU Radio faculty adviser.

Jenkins is also the general manager of WSNC-FM Radio and a faculty member in the Mass Communications Department.

Jenkins said that he wants all the University's student media to engage in multimedia projects.

"It will be good if we could have people from The News Argus and RAM TV on the air," Jenkins said.
