Campus radio is an important educational and social facility for campuses around the world. It prepares students with real-life experience. Most of these stations feature news shows, sports programmes, and public affairs broadcasts, which prepare students for careers in journalism, television, and more.
This undoubtedly allows students to receive important media experience they may not be able to find anywhere else on campus. Whether it is through research, working with others, or preparing their own material, there is transferable experience in much of what a disc jockey or reporter does at his or her college radio station. Who knows, maybe your favorite morning show news anchor got their early start in college radio.
