WKNC Summer Interest Meetings and DJ Training!

WKNC 88.1fm  is looking for students of NC State to become members of our lovely staff. We offer our volunteers on and off-air positions if they are full-time students of North Carolina State University with at least 2.0 grade point average. Individuals interested in qualifying for an on-air position will need to complete the 5 week training class and pass a written as well as an in-studio exam.

Anyone interested in becoming a DJ must attend one of the two interest meetings. These will be May 23 and May 24 from 5:30-6:30pm in Witherspoon Student Center room 201. At these meetings we will be handing out applications to those that wish to undergo our summer DJ training course. Applications will be due by Friday May 25 at 5pm in 343 Witherspoon Student Center. Individuals are highly encouraged to apply if they show particular interest our metal, hip-hop, and electronica genres. We will also be discussing the variety of ways that people can get involved with the station if they do not feel like they have the personalities to tackle an on-air position. We will be discussing exciting ways of getting involved with the station that includes everything from production to public affairs to promotion. If you are not accepted into the training class there will still be a variety of ways that you can become involved with the station that do not require DJ training, and people interested in how they can get involved are highly encouraged to attend one of the meetings

After reviewing all applications, the general manager will contact you to notify whether or not you have been accepted into the training course. Decisions will be made by the general manager and program director, in consultation with the student board of directors.

Training for the summer will take place in Witherspoon Student Center room 201 Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30pm on May 29, June 5, June 12, June 19, and June 26. 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.
