Moravian College Radio Station WRMC Returns

Station commences internal Webcasting with World Wide Web broadcasting to come

(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania)— WRMC Greyhound Radio, Moravian College’s radio station, became operational on Sunday, November 9 at 5 p.m. After three years without a radio station, several students started last fall to work with faculty and administration to resurrect the program. With the help of Sean Tallarico, director of campus safety, Ron Helmuth, director of the Center for Information Technology, and Fred Shultheis, associate professor of mathematics and new faculty advisor, students developed a plan for web broadcasting, a budget, and a strategic plan for a debut in the fall of 2003.

Matt Miles, (Walnutport, Pa.) a senior at Moravian is serving as the general manager. The WRMC staff consists of 25 dedicated students and will cover six days of air time for 12 hours each day. The station will offer a plethora of musical genres from classical to the latest sounds of college radio. Every Thursday and Friday, faculty members are invited to run a one hour show from 12-1 p.m. The station will only be heard on campus until the needed funds are raised for an internet broadcast server.

WRMC is not a typical radio station. The broadcast will be on-campus only, until $3,000 is raised for a dedicated internet broadcast server. It uses Shoutcast software, which is compatible with Windows Media Player, WinAmp, iTunes for Mac and most other MP3 player software.
