Coyote Radio has a message for you, so listen up! “Come on over and talk to us! Coyote Radio is open to all students and faculty,” said Co-Operations Manager Alfredo Cruz.
They want your input on how to make the station better. The station is located between Pfau library and the Cave on the lowest level of the building. They have many opportunities for students and faculty members to take advantage of.
Coyote Radio plays music from local bands 24/7, and they even cover many events on campus. A lot of the music they play is new music from artists trying to get their names out into the world, so it’s likely you will hear a new artist that you’ve never heard of before.
Having a radio station on campus is a great opportunity to have because not all universities offer this experience to students. Through Coyote Radio, students are able to gain valuable skills and experience in a field that is not offered in other places.
Due to the station only being accessible to listeners through the Coyote Radio app, the station is currently hoping to connect with the administration to get the radio playing in the markets and other places on campus.
Senior Communications majors, Mirna Hernandez and Floroliva Alvarez have been on the air for the past year and they love being DJs for the radio. They want to encourage their fellow Coyotes to download the app and listen to the radio station.
“If the school was more open to promoting the station, that would be great because people can only hear us on campus or on the app,” said Hernandez.
Downloading the app would also help support Coyote Radio and potentially give them the opportunity to be played live throughout campus.
“I think students and faculty should listen to Coyote Radio because it’s a part of the school and it’s nice to be supportive of each other in our community. The music and everyone on the station are great, so we should support our local radio station,” said Alvarez. “It’s also a really great opportunity and we all learn new things. Some people even go on to work for the radio after this.”
Coyote Radio encourages students and faculty to tune in and get a feel for the station. They want to know what you think and let you know that your voice will be heard.
“Coyote Radio wants to be a bigger part of the campus life and identity. They want to have a higher profile of the campus community,” said Cruz.
It’s easy to get involved with the radio. Many of the DJs are volunteers and there are open slots available for those who would like to get experience in broadcasting. No specific major or prior experience is necessary to join.
So, if you’re interested in starting a new hobby, or maybe even career path, head over to the Coyote Radio station.
