Osprey Radio, the University of North Florida’s student-operated campus radio station, and WJCT Public Radio 89.9 FM are collaborating to showcase late-night student programs on Jacksonville’s National Public Radio station starting Sunday, Dec. 4.
The late-night UNF programs air Sunday to Thursday nights at midnight, which is a part of WJCT’s after-hours programming.Listeners will hear five genres—jazz, heavy metal, indie, techno and world pop—in five programs, including Jazz with Jon (UNF senior Jon Tredway); Night Crusade (with Zach Neaves, a senior); Audio Adventure (with senior Trey Gowdy); The Techno Show (with Vess, The Oracle, a freshman); and World Pop (with senior Chris Jones).
“This is a great opportunity for UNF students and Osprey Radio to get on the air waves,” said Andrew Landis, Osprey Radio station manager. “It will broaden our listener base.”
Landis says that after months of negotiations between Osprey Radio and WJCT 89.9 FM, the disc jockeys are excited to share the genres of music from their favoriteindie artists. “It’s a great merging of UNF and WJCT and the start of a really cool tradition,” said Gowdy.
