HUNTER COLLEGE–As colleges across the country have switched to distance learning due to COVID-19, college radio stations have found a way to continue running remotely and help maintain a sense of community during the pandemic. Hunter’s own WHCS has adapted to keep shows airing and provide information and entertainment to the student body.

            Johanna Kim, station manager at WHCS described some of the changes. “There are zoom meetings now instead of face to face meetings, but I still wish it was face to face… we originally didn’t plan on doing remote shows but John our general manager wanted to continue.”
