Cathy Coomer, 91.3 FM General Manager and faculty member of the Communications department says “I couldn’t be happier for my students and the station. They have worked hard to receive these honors and I am so proud of the station and its growth. This just justifies what I have thought all along.”

Webb and Powders are planning to attend the CMJ conference in New York City over fall break.
