Spring 2012 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 six-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 Tuesday, Jan. 10 and Wednesday, Jan. 11 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. The location will be 201 Witherspoon. You only need to attend one of the two interest meetings. 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, Jan. 13. 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 Jan. 17, Jan. 24, Feb. 7, Feb. 14, Feb. 21 and Feb. 28, 2012. The location will be 201 Witherspoon. If you cannot attend five of the six sessions or need to come late/leave early, please do not apply for the training program.
