Radio Broadcasting

Radio broadcasting is an ever-evolving medium.  It’s no longer just about being a “DJ”.  It’s about being a versatile contributor within a group of radio stations. Radio stations are pushing web and social media content to engage with listeners along with the traditional aspects of radio. We provide you with the fundamentals of news reporting, radio performance, programming and operations. You will have the opportunity to take webmedia, marketing and social media courses as electives.

At NESCom our focus is giving you the tools needed to build your knowledge and develop your skills. WHSN 89.3-FM, Bangor’s only alternative rock station, provides students a platform craft their skills.  You will be responsible for on-air shifts and programming. The radio station, which broadcasts 24 hours per day, provides our students with real world experience.
