BROOKLYN COLLEGE–In pre-pandemic times, Brooklyn College’s up-and-coming broadcasters went on air to share their takes on buzzing topics, music, news, and everything in between. While some students worked in the booths, and others were bustling behind the scenes, WBCR remained alive and afloat. But once COVID-19 abruptly made it close its doors, production stopped – that is until a few aspiring journalists decided to revive the college’s staple.
“I believe in the power of college radio,” said Joel Dave Duncan, the radio’s general manager. “And I believe that once college radio is able to provide someone with the opportunity to prove their worth to themselves and to other people, maintain an audience, tell a story, however the case may be, I think that that gives them a great start into the media industry.”
