WKNC is a student-run radio station, which means all our student directors also have to go to class, study for and pass those classes, work other part-time jobs and have family and social responsibilities. This also means sometimes we miss our office hours or are slow to respond to email. Please be patient. You can refer to the NC State academic calendar for school holidays, breaks and exams. All directors can be reached at 919-515-2401, but email is the preferred method of communication. Our mailing address is located at bottom of this page. Before sending an email, check our FAQ page to see if we have already anticipated and answered your question.
