High School Radio Day April 22nd
April 17, 2015 at 4:19 AM (PT)
The 4th Annual HIGH SCHOOL RADIO DAY is scheduled for APRIL 22nd. Since there are only about 200 high schools in the nation with either a terrestrial over-the-air non-commercial, educational FM radio station or an Internet-only or online radio, organizers hope that HIGH SCHOOL RADIO DAY (HSRD) will raise a greater awareness of the ones that are still broadcasting over the air and newer ones streaming online.
A website has been created to publicize the activities planned by participating stations on APRIL 22nd; schools can register their stations on that site. Also on the site are links to participating high schools with links to their websites and online streams of their programming; notable high school radio grads; links to other high school stations nationwide; and a resource page with information pertinent to high school broadcasters.
HIGH SCHOOL RADIO DAY was created after COLLEGE RADIO DAY launched in 2011. HIGH SCHOOL RADIO DAY Founder PETE BOWERS (Station Manager, WBFH/BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI.
“The number of terrestrial stations is dropping but the number of online stations is increasing with some of those applying for LPFM construction permits,” said HSRD Founder and WBFH/BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MI Station Manager PETE BOWERS, who scheduled the first HSRD in MAY 2012. “That’s why we need to unite on HIGH SCHOOL RADIO DAY and make the public aware of what we do, how we do it, and the service we provide our communities.” he said.
