WVCW is submitting some audio for the 2016 College Media Associates Pinnacle Awards. Here’s the breakdown of what we’ve submitted and the audio.
Men’s Basketball Play-By-Play:
From WVCW’s award-winning Sports Department comes our coverage of the VCU’s Men’s Basketball game against Oregon State in the 2016 NCAA Tournament. WVCW brings sports entertainment to the greater VCU community through broadcasts of our Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Men’s Baseball teams.
Interview with John Guzlowski:
Mikaela Reinard, WVCW Programming Director and
Reporter, interviews John Guzlowski, a Polish- American and the son of two WWII concentration camp survivors, on his life growing up in an environment plagued with the consequences inflicted on victims of vicious hate and war. Guzlowski was born in a refugee camp shortly after concentration camps were liberated and at a young age, his family relocated to the United States. Ultimately, Guzlowski became a writer shedding light on the stories of his parents, as they took on the daunting task to survive one of the most gruesome moments to ever find its way into the pages of history.
Election Coverage from Super Tuesday:
The single largest news event in nearly 15 years at WVCW! Nerd March Madness brought live coverage of the Super Tuesday Primaries to the VCU community, providing up-to-the-minute poll results and featuring panelists from the VCU Political Science Department. Hosted by Jon Carpenter and Jacob McFadden, this was not one to miss.
2014 Dominion Christmas Parade
Listen to the 5th annual recording of WVCW’s live Coverage of the 31st annual 2014 Dominion Christmas Parade. The parade started at the Science Museum on Broad Street and continued along Broad street until 7th street. This years parade featured Marching Bands, Balloons, Festive Floats, and some very special guests, including some who are nationally known like The Harlem Globetrotters, some storm troupers, and Walking Dead actor, Chad Coleman, as its Grand Marshal. The parade also hosted some groups that are unique to Richmond like Snow Bear. The parade of course also featured Santa Clause.
Presented by Jacob McFadden, Heather Hudgins, and Jon Carpenter.
Featuring Jean Sweeney, Matthew Hall, Austin Moore, and the dedicated staff at WVCW. Listen to past shows here
Okay so I’m not dead, nor am I actually dying, well okay in the sense that we are all dying then yes I am dying but I digress. It was a good year for WVCW, correction it was a great year for WVCW. We were on national television, The Aftermath placed in the Top 5 for College Radio Sports Programs, more than tripled our Facebook likes, and some other stuff that has made us the best organization at VCU.
While I could blame myself for these accomplishments, none of this wouldn’t have been accomplished if it weren’t for my executive staff (WVCW’s Mount Rushmore) Erinn, Joel, Paula, and Heather. I am forever in your debt for all your hard work over this year. WVCW also couldn’t have done it without the open doors and guidance of Jon Carpenter, Lauren Katchuk, Greg Weatherford, and Mark Jefferies of the VCU Student Media Center. Finally, I want to thank every member of WVCW who made me want to go to work everyday and made me strive to be the best I could be.
I wouldn’t trade my time at WVCW for anything and I hope that’s how more and more members feel for years to come. And I would like to part some wisdom for future generations.
- Shirts= Likes
- People will come to meetings if you tell them there will be punch and pie.
- If you’re interested in college radio then go there wearing your favorite band shirt, and be prepared to discuss music, ALOT.
I know some BIG things are coming to WVCW in the near future and while I’m sad that I won’t be there when they happen, I am glad to have been a part of it.
