WCCR BEGINS FIFTH YEAR OF BROADCASTING

WILLIAMSBURG, Ky.—On May 12, 2004, University of the Cumberlands opened the doors of WCCR, 94.5 FM, its non-commercial, educational radio station located on the Williamsburg campus in the Grace Crum Rollins Fine Arts Building. WCCR is a student-operated station, advised by three members of the communication arts faculty. The station features a wide range of musical styles and programs including: Contemporary Christian, Gospel, Country, Classic Rock, Jazz and Modern Rock. During the regular school year, the station is on the air from 8:00 AM until 10:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

WCCR is low power, but it covers a 10-mile radius, which includes all of Williamsburg as well as parts of Jellico, Tenn. and Corbin, Ky. A person does not have to be a communication arts major in order to participate with WCCR. All UC students, faculty and staff are encouraged to become involved. Student manager Jennifer Belcher recently created a “Deejay Bios” page linked to the university’s official web site, www.ucumberlands.edu, where students and faculty talk about their programs and their experiences at WCCR.

For more information about WCCR, please contact Dr. Keith Semmel, WCCR’s General Manager, at 539-4494 or ksemmel@ucumberlands.edu
