Updates from August Storms

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Hello WVKR family —

WVKR was recently greatly affected by the storms of 08/03 and 08/17. During both of those storms significant portions of Vassar College lost power, thus putting the station off the air overnight. In addition to power outages, there have been other difficulties behind the scenes, further complicating the station’s broadcasting. Specifically, we are dealing with broken blades for the console in the Air Studio, as well as shifts in contact for our technician support. Thankfully, with the guidance of Frank and Nick, both of whom are absolutely integral to the station, we were back broadcasting on air shortly after the power outages, and as of today, are back streaming online as well. Summer staff (all two of us) are currently working to ensure that DJs can be back in the Air Studio soon, and definitely before our upcoming pledge drive.

Respectfully yours,
WVKR Summer Staff
