World College Radio Day

WWSU is a Proud Participant and 2021 Award Winner

World College Radio Day Logo

What is World College Radio Day?

World College Radio Day is an annual worldwide event held by the College Radio Foundation. Hundreds of college radio stations around the world, including WWSU 106.9 FM, raise their voices and showcase what college radio has to offer. On this day, college radio stations will often put on special events, programs, interviews, bands, and much more. Take a break for a day from mainstream radio and tune in to your local college radio station!

Why Support College Radio?

Invaluable Radio Experience

College radio stations provide students looking to get involved in radio with invaluable experience. While classrooms provide critical education on mass media, college stations provide real-world and hands-on training and experience to compliment college education.

Independent Operations

Many college radio stations are run independently and free of influence from large media groups. Some, such as WWSU, are even non-profit. This allows college stations to provide a wide variety of creative content with minimal advertising and commercial influence.

Community Voice

College radio is a voice for not just the college but also the community. From local and independent artists to emerging leaders and talent, college radio provides others with a platform for exposure. College radio also provides crucial information to local communities.

World College Radio Day 2021

Winner of the Spirit of College Radio Award 2021

Spirit of College Radio Award 2021 certificate for WWSU 106.9 FM
Over 600 radio stations participated in World College Radio Day, 2021. WCRD awarded 10 radio stations who went above and beyond to show the true spirit of College Radio. WWSU 106.9 FM is a proud recipient of one of these awards. And we thank everyone for their continued support and listenership. We could not have done this without all of you!

The theme for World College Radio Day (WCRD) 2021 was #ResilientRadio, and the official ambassador was Weird Al Yankovic.

Many radio stations around the world faced hardships during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the pandemic lockdown of 2020, several stations, including WWSU, lost access to their studios (although some remained on the air). WWSU was fortunate enough to have the technology allowing on-air talents to host live radio shows from remote locations, such as their homes. Unfortunately, many other stations did not have this technology and relied on automation and pre-recorded programming.

WCRD 2021 aimed to showcase the resilience of college radio. On October 1, 2021, over 600 college radio stations participated and came together to share their passion for college radio amid these difficult times. WCRD hosted a 24-hour global marathon featuring radio programs from several participants around the world.

WWSU originally planned to host a 24-hour radiothon on World College Radio Day by providing non-stop radio programming and no automation for 24 hours. Unfortunately, Wright State University's Student Union, which houses the WWSU studios, experienced an electrical fire in late August, shutting the building and the radio station down for three weeks.

Luckily, WWSU Radio experienced no damage from the fire. However, once the Student Union was back open, WWSU only had several days left to plan a radiothon. Despite doubts that it could be done, the station decided to try, but aim for a 17-hour radiothon instead.

It was a massive success. WWSU was able to provide 17 hours of non-stop programming, which included (but was not limited to) the following:

Requirements for Membership:

Be a Wright State student in good standing

  • You must be registered at Wright State University for classes... 6 credit hours for undergraduates, 3 for graduates... for the current or next semester.
  • You must be in good standing with the university and maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Non Wright State Students (including alumni, faculty, and staff) cannot be members of WWSU 106.9 FM. However, they can get involved (such as co-hosting a radio show) under the guidance of an organization member. Contact us at wwsu1069fm@wright.edu if interested.

Complete our free training program

All prospective members must complete basic training on the organization's constitution, policies, and procedures. This training is free and offered on Pilot. It usually only takes about an hour.

Additional training is required to use our radio studios (such as for hosting a radio show or recording audio), be a DJ at events, or be a sports announcer. These trainings are also free and on Pilot. Each training program may take an additional 1-4 hours to complete.

Training is asynchronous and can be completed at your own pace.

Maintain good standing and contribute to the organization

Although we do not charge dues for membership, membership is a privilege and not a right.

All members are expected to follow the regulations explained in our constitution (which members will receive during their training). This holds especially true for radio regulations.

Since we do not charge membership dues, we also expect members to contribute their time or supplies to the organization each semester to maintain their privileges (especially hosting radio shows / using the studios). There are many ways to contribute:

  • Help us provide music, set up / tear down, and promote the station at events
  • Announce sports games
  • Review new music submitted to the station for quality and radio compliance
  • Donate cleaning supplies to sanitize the studios
  • Record Public Service Announcements, weather, and other segments for the station
  • Make promotional material / graphics for your radio show
  • Attend required member meetings
  • Donate snacks / K-cups / coffee / tea to the "relaxation station" in the station lobby.

On-Air Sponsorships / Underwritings

Underwriting Regulations

As a non-profit radio station, we have strict regulations we must follow set forth by the Federal Communications Commission. In short, we cannot air anything that could be deemed "commercial content". When you sponsor a broadcast or the station, you are essentially making a generous donation to us to keep us on the air. As a thank-you, we air an informative, non-biased, non-pursuasive spot for your brand / organization / identity / event / cause. Here are the regulations we must follow when making spots:

  • must be informative (not pursuasive) and non-biased, allowing listeners to make their own opinions
  • must not include calls to action (eg. "buy this", "please donate", "sign up now")
  • must not include prices or price info (eg. discounts, promotions, etc)
  • must not include any music / sound effects; must only include the voice of the reader
  • must be voiced/recorded by a station personnel; must not be recorded by the sponsor
  • must use third-person language (eg. must not say "you", "we", etc) because spots are addressed from the perspective of WWSU, not the sponsor
  • must not use subjective or comparison language (eg. "best in town", "better than Your Company", "right thing to do")
  • must contain a prefixed message: "Support for [WWSU Radio or Insert Broadcast Name Here on WWSU Radio] comes from Your Brand Here."

Underwritings will go through WWSU's directors for approval before being recorded by them to be put on the air. We can also help you make a script that will conform to non-profit underwriting regulations.

Station Sponsorship

  • Random days/times: $3/spot
  • Set days/times: $4/spot

Broadcast Sponsorship

You can sponsor specific shows or broadcasts if you enjoy their content. Your promotion will air when the show/broadcast is on the air and will not air at other times.

You can choose the following for a broadcast sponsorship:

Public Display Sign

The public display sign includes the large TV facing out our studio window and towards a high-traffic hallway in the Student Union. It also includes the left TV in the WWSU lobby.

Use Your Microphone / Browser

COMING SOON!

In the future, you will have the ability to call the DJ / hosts using your web browser and microphone. This will be higher audio quality than using the request line.
