Radio Station Visit #139 - WFUV at Fordham University

When my sister-in-law became the Dean of Fordham College at Rose Hill, I knew that it was just a matter of time before I took a trip to the Bronx to not only see her, but to also tour the school's public radio station WFUV. The time finally arrived over spring break and it was great getting a VIP tour of the long-time station (it dates back to 1947).

Little did I know that WFUV is an atypical public radio station in that it employees a large number of students to help out with many tasks, including video production, engineering, news, and sports. See my full report on Radio Survivor.
