Each spring, mtvU seeks to recognize the nation's best college radio station with a 'Woodie Award.' Not only has our own WKNC 88.1 FM been nominated for top honors, NC State's home to all things eclectic sits squarely in mtvU's 'Top 10.'
Student Media Makes Headlines
2010 was a banner year for NC State's newspaper, radio, yearbook and literary magazine student staffs, which racked up a bevy of national awards for their efforts. In addition, Windhover - NC State's literary and visual arts magazine - and the Agromeck yearbook have been named finalists for 2011 Crown Awards.
Student Media Honored
NC State’s yearbook and literary magazine won top national honors, while students at WKNC radio took home awards for best deejay, regular program and student media Web site from the Associated Collegiate Press.
Wedged into a series of small rooms on the third floor of Witherspoon Student Center, the entirely student-run WKNC 88.1 FM serves up an around-the-clock, steady mix of music - everything from punk and metal to rap and a cappella. It's a seriously successful formula that has earned 88.1 FM bragging rights as the Triangle's top station of its kind.
Rock Can Roll
In continuing NC State's mission to assist and serve those beyond the borders of our campus, Student Government, the Union Activities Board and WKNC 88.1 came together last week with a singular goal in mind - cranking up the volume to help a local food bank fight hunger across 34 North Carolina counties.
You Say You Want a Revolution
