Catch WCCR on the Go

 


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky - Live programming resumes next week, Tuesday September 6th, on WCCR as it enters into its 7th season as the University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) own campus and community radio station.

WCCR offers a variety of programming, ranging from sports talk to pop culture with plenty of options in between. These individual shows feature student and faculty deejays, some of whom have been working with the station since it began in 2004. One particular favorite returning show is “Culture Clash”, a pop culture discussion and news program presented by Communications professor Jeremiah Massengale and student Marc Webb.

There are several ways for students, faculty, and alumni to tune in to WCCR. First, the station is broadcast on 94.5 FM within a ten mile radius of the University. WCCR is also available online from the university webpage at www.ucumberlands.edu/wccr. New this fall, WCCR will be present on the new UC iPhone app as well. To download the UC application, search “Cumberlands” on your iPhone’s App Store.

Dr. Keith Semmel, chair of the Communication Arts and Theatre program and WCCR station manager, said, “I think the advent of taking this online has been a boom to the radio station where we previously were only heard by the folks in our immediate vicinity.”

Listeners will be able to view the full programming schedule online and on the UC iPhone app. Students interested in becoming a deejay are encouraged to send an email to the station at wccr@ucumberlands.edu for more information.

Located in Williamsburg, KY, University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; nine graduate degrees, including two doctorates, a specialist, and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
