Summer DJ training

WKNC 88.1 FM, the student-run radio station at North Carolina State University, offers volunteer on- and off-air positions to full-time N.C. State students with a 2.0 minimum grade point average. To qualify for an on-air position, you must first complete a five week DJ training program and pass a written operator’s exam and demonstrative audio board test.

Anyone interested in becoming a WKNC DJ must attend one of our two interest meetings. They will be  Wednesday, June 29 and Thursday, June 30 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. The locations are To Be Announced. During the interest meeting, we will provide an overview of WKNC and its role on campus and in the community. You will also receive an application, which must be completed and returned to the WKNC studios at 343 Witherspoon Student Center by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 1. Individuals interested in electronic, hip-hop, heavy metal and public affairs are particularly encouraged to attend the interest meeting and apply for a spot in the WKNC training program.

After reviewing all applications, our general manager will contact you via email to notify you if you have been accepted into the WKNC training program. Decisions will be made by the general manager and program director, in consultation with the student board of directors.

The DJ training class will be held Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on July 5, July 12, July 19, July 26 and August 2, 2011. The location will be Cox 200. If you cannot attend four of the five sessions or need to come late/leave early, please do not apply for the training program.

Incoming NCSU students may apply for summer training, but must be registered for fall classes by the end of the training program.

Interest meetings for the fall training program will be Wednesday, August 17 and Thursday, August 18 from 5:30-6:30 p.m., with training classes to be held Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m. beginning August 23.
