The economic recession is definitely still on people’s minds, especially graduating students. But what about students who wanted to go into a sector that already had a reputation for not providing the best-paying job market out there — the nonprofit sector to be exact? We tried to answer some of those questions for you in our VIP segment. In Hear This, we brought you a special interview about a highly-anticipated music festival that will be host to so many bands, it’s literally impossible to go to hear all of them in the three days of performances. And in our Wolfpacker of the Week, we literally bring you “news from the Brickyard to your backyard,” where a student explains his group’s attempt at raising money from all different kinds of avenues for a memorial of the beloved late women’s basketball coach Kay Yow.
This week, Evan and I gave listeners the weekly news update.
Information for the newscast was taken from the following articles:

This week’s VIP focused on the nonprofit sector during an economic recession and what students looking to go into that sector after graduation should keep in mind. Jacob spoke to Kelly Beck from 1304 Bikes, a Raleigh-based 501(c)3 to talk about her organization’s activities since the Bike co-op was shut down in June. And he also spoke to Woody Catoe from the University Career Center about counselors advice to students looking for jobs within nonprofit organizations.

In honor of the Troika Music Festival Nov. 5 – 7, we produced an extended Hear This segment for you this week. Mike Alston sat down with Kyle Miller, co-owner of Churchkey Records in Durham, to discuss what attendees can expect this year. The music festival was first started in 2002 as a one-day Durham musicians’ festival, put on by the Durham Association for Downtown Arts, Inc, and has since expanded to a three-day music festival for all Triangle musicians. Make sure the check out the festival line up, featuring many different bands from Bowerbirds to Caltrop to the ExMonkeys and many more!

The Sports Revolution talked about the N.C. State Women’s team’s first game back on the court following the passing of Kay Yow. We heard from Stephanie Glance’s post-game comments against BC. Then the guys jumped into a conversation about the N.C. State men’s team and their weekend game against that other school that wears pansy blue. James and Preston sat on opposite sides of the room while they discussed Ben McCauley’s hard/intentional (you decide) foul on UNC’s Copeland. The Rev went around the rest of the ACC talking Wake’s win over Duke and monumental collapse against Georgia Tech.
Then it was time for Super Bowl wrap-up, the gang discussed their favorite commercials, the Boss’ slide at halftime, and the Steelers last second win over the Cards.

More than 1,000 people attended a tribute to the late Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Coach Kay Yow, according to an article in today’s Technician. WKNC was honored to carry the event live and reproduce the audio for you here. Many thanks to WKNC Engineer Austin Page, Evening Exchange host John Boyer and everyone else at WKNC who made this broadcast possible.
The hour-long tribute features words by Director of Basketball Operations for Wolfpack Women’s basketball Robin Pate, Director of Athletics Coach Lee Fowler, Chancellor James L. Oblinger, Assistant Coach Jenny Palmateer and Interim Coach Stephanie Glance. As pictures do not translate well on radio, a video tribute to Coach Yow was not included. We instead rebroadcast an interview from Tuesday’s Sports Revolution featuring Patrick Kinas, play-by-play announcer for the women’s basketball team. We encourage you to watch the video tribute at WRAL.com.
Listen to the full audio here and watch the Technician Tribute to Kay Yow below:
N.C. State is hosting a tribute tonight on Kay Yow Court in Reynolds Coliseum to honor women’s basketball Kay Yow, who passed away Saturday after a long battle with cancer. The tribute begins at 7 p.m. and will be heard live as part of “Evening Exchange” on 88.1 FM and wknc.org.
On the Sports Revolution this week, Preston took the week off to celebrate her 21st birthday. No worries, she’ll be back next week. In the meantime, Derrick Thornton filled in for her. The guys had a touching interview with Patrick Kinas, play-by-play voice of Wolfpack Women’s Basketball, on the passing of the late, great Coach Kay Yow. The guys gave their insight on the State men’s basketball game Tuesday evening against Miami, and discussed what it would take for the Red and White to pull off the huge upset of that powdery-blue colored school that no one really likes to talk about. The guys hit on the other big ACC match up this week, Wake vs. Duke, and gave an overview of that game and its’ implications on the conference race this season. Then, oh yeah… it’s Super Bowl week! So the Rev discussed what Arizona needs to do if they are going to pull off their fourth straight upset in the playoffs this season.
