We are delighted to introduce to you the CRD 2018 Task Force!
Everyone in this team is firmly committed to making College Radio Day 2018 a huge success!
Jeff Szczesniak – PRESIDENT EMERITUS
(WDWN-FM Advisor and an Instructional Assistant at Cayuga Community College in Auburn, NY).
“College Radio to me is a place where you can connect with and participate with people who have similar passions to learn a sense of community and how to become a better communicator and to creatively express yourself to achieve a goal of what you want to be and become.”
Lance Liguez – PRESIDENT
(Lecturer at the University of Texas at Arlington and the Faculty Advisor for UTA Radio.com).
“College radio offers a chance to do something large, commercial stations can’t (or won’t do). It’s a little weird, a little subversive and an invaluable training ground for the next generation of broadcasters. Without college radio, students and local artists wouldn’t have an outlet to hone their craft.”
Anabella Poland – 1st VICE-PRESIDENT
(General Manager of 90.3 WMSC-FM, The Voice of Montclair State, NJ, where she also teaches Radio & Podcast Production).
“College Radio is the last bastion of freedom in radio. It is fearless and responds to the beat of its community. Ironically, in an age when local and regional newsrooms are being gutted, college radio shines brightest with programming that localizes music, news, sports and community issues while training the future generation of media executives.”
Jeff Pfister – FUNDRAISING & DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
(Instructor of Communication & Director of WGLZ at West Liberty University)
Savannah Gilbreath – DIRECTOR OF SOCIAL MEDIA
(Student at Texas Tech University, majoring in Advertising and is the Social Media and Website Director for the student-ran radio station, KTXT 88.1 The Raider at Texas Tech).
“College Radio is a connection for students and to students, for the surrounding area.
Rob Quicke – FOUNDER
(General Manager at WPSC 88.7 FM and Associate Professor, William Paterson University in New Jersey).
“College radio changed my life, and there’s no doubt that it can have a huge impact on those students who get involved. It is a great way to make friends, discover new music, and prepare for a future career in a variety of different fields!”
