Tune into any radio station in Winnipeg, and you’re likely to hear a Red River College grad. From the deejays who chat in between songs, to the news reporters on CBC, RRC has a long history of producing excellent talent in radio. The tradition continues with the launch of Red River Radio this past summer, a fully-functional, online station run almost entirely by Creative Communications students. But that doesn’t mean they should have all the fun.
Red River Radio is looking for all RRC students to participate in the station. Listen online at radio.rrc.ca, or better yet — appear on the station yourselves! Got a cool project to talk about? Want to promote your band’s upcoming show? Are you planning a fundraiser, or bragging about a recent accomplishment? Red River Radio wants to hear from you. Plus, if you head down to the station in the Roblin Centre Campus you’ll get to experience how a real radio station works.
John Conklin is a second-year Creative Communications student who is co-host of the daily morning show, “The Morning Hike with John and Mike,” which airs weekdays from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m.
“We’re always looking to get more students involved in the conversation on the Morning Hike,” he said. “Give us a call, or better yet stop by and talk to us in person. Red River Radio is the perfect platform for students to talk about what matters to them.”
