Radio-Television

 

SUNY Adirondack operates 92.7 WGFR, the College’s FM radio station. WGFR also streams online at wgfr.org.  Students broadcast alternative music, entertainment news, sports, and public service announcements to surrounding communities. A five-week DJ training program is held at the start of each semester. The training program is free and open to all students enrolled at SUNY Adirondack. WGFR is a member of the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS). Each spring, SUNY Adirondack students attend the annual IBS convention in New York City. During the three-day event, students share ideas with other college radio programmers from around the country and network with industry professionals.

The Adirondack Broadcast Association (ABA) produces the Prospect Child and Family Center Telethon each spring. The telethon is seen on Time-Warner Cable in numerous communities across the region. ABA members also organize SuperJam, a local rock concert, and perform disc jockey “road shows” to fund two SUNY Adirondack scholarships awarded by the SUNY Adirondack Foundation.  Membership in ABA is open to all SUNY Adirondack students regardless of major.
