Bloomfield College professor Esther Dillard announced on Oct. 7 that WBCR, the official Internet radio station of in the institution, has begun its inaugural programming schedule for the 2013-2014 academic year.

A student-run project, the station will feature original programming that will capture the College’s happenings, including campus events, news and athletics contests. Bloomfield College students will produce all content, with the goal being to provide 24 hours of daily content for listeners inside and outside the institution’s community. “We are so excited about this month’s launch,” Dillard said of the station’s inception. “We have installed a new operating system, which will allow us to pursue our goal of broadcasting 24 hours per day, seven days per week.” “While we are still a work-in-progress, I am so pleased by the tremendous response we have received from the College community thus far. The support has been incredible, and we will continue to move this project forward so our institution has a radio station that is providing listeners without outstanding, student-produced content.”
