Happy Birthday WBCRWBCR, Brooklyn College Radio rocks on this morning after last night’s 40th anniversary celebration of the entirely student run radio station. Alumni from past years joined faculty, staff and current students for the affair. 

And as the student operated station turned 40, the college celebrated its 60th year of offering radio courses with the first ones being offered in 1948 through the Department of Speech. 

The station boasts of a number of illustrious alumni including Z100 Executive Producer Skeery Jones and Scott Herman, Executive Vice President of Operations at CBS Radio. Jones, who produces his station’s flagship Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show, still supports his alma mater with campus visits and frequent “shout outs” on his blog and myspace page. Herman still holds regular barbecues at his house with buddies from his college station. In a written statement sent to last night’s attendees, Herman said he views WBCR as his “first job in radio” and went further by saying that he learned everything he needed for his career at his old college station.

WBCR is student operated and supervised by the Brooklyn College Department of Television and Radio. The department offers majors in Television and Radio production and Broadcast Journalism.
