O Say, Can You Hear WUTC Gallantly Streaming

This week, WUTC-FM 88.1, the campus radio station has begun web streaming through the Internet on the station website, www.wutc.org , allowing a much broader audience, according to Station Manager John McCormack.

"We realize the world is changing, and we want to work toward the future. Through web streaming, the sound of WUTC can be heard at everyone’s desk, no matter where they work," McCormack said.

The printed program guide for the station has been phased out, and McCormack says listeners can click on the website to learn when their favorite shows will air.

New National Public Radio dishes are being installed atop Hunter Hall, and they will face not one but three satellites, always providing a backup to keep the station on the air.

"It was a very expensive commitment. Locally, we expect National Public Radio equipment and construction costs to reach $30,000," McCormack said.

According to NPR, the installation will provide the most sophisticated non-military communication system available, and it will be completed later in the summer.

These new developments coincide with a special anniversary , as WUTC celebrates it’s twentieth year of operation, according to McCormack.

"We have been around for a long time, and we are no longer an experiment, but a tradition. We are looking forward to another 20 years of providing quality programming for our listeners," McCormack said.
