This week we are showcasing ACRN (All Campus Radio Network) broadcasting from Ohio University! Founded in 1971, the all student-run station has a long and rich history. Since 1999 the station has been a 24/7 webcasting power house playing a “college rock” format but also including speciality shows ranging from hip-hop, metal, punk and classic rock.
The station uses their website and social media in creative ways to interact with their audience. They offer four different blogs from their staff talking about the latest music news and they have a Tumblr page that features photos from recent shows.
They also produce videos to highlight local bands and recent guests!
