CRD ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS:

Jodeane Newcomb Brownlee – STATION OUTREACH
(Lecturer & Faculty Adviser, MavRadio.FM at University of Nebraska at Omaha)
“College radio is the essence of free speech. It should be fought for, shared with and supported by the very community it represents. I can’t think of a more pure, raw and powerful medium.”

Dave Sarkies – FEATURES WRITER
(Host on Lake Effect Radio at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, OH)
“For seeking out new and different music, there’s no better outlet than college radio! Whether it’s truly new, just breaking sounds of current artists, or simply ‘new to you’ and something amazing you’ve never heard before – and likely won’t hear anywhere else – college radio is an invaluable resource for music discovery.”

Sean McDonald – PREVIOUS PRESIDENT, COLLEGE RADIO DAY
(Director, Neumann Media at Neumann University/ 98.5 WNUW)
“College Radio is the place that students are given a chance to be themselves, find their creative muse, and use their voice in a way they never had before.”

Lance Liguez – PREVIOUS PRESIDENT, COLLEGE RADIO DAY
(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.

Jeff Szczesniak PREVIOUS PRESIDENT, COLLEGE RADIO DAY
(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.
