Behold the newest addition to your campus radio.
Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT) is about to get cooler and more techie as it is set to launch its own college radio station today for the students and the community of the Institute.
Radio Cardinal is the first and official radio station of the institute to deliver news and variety programs for students and other members of the Mapua community.
Jointly organized by Multimedia Arts and Technical Communication students, the radio station will be run by student volunteers who are passionate in the field of broadcasting and media operations.
“It’s important to Mapua because this would be the school’s first (radio station) and it’s a reflection of being a technological institute,” said Carlo Bergonia, student president of Radio Cardinal.
The radio station will also showcase news and information programs for students, faculty, and even for those who wants to be updated on events and happenings in the institute.
“Some people, especially those who are not a student of Mapua, do not get an easy access to the current news of Mapua that is why Radio Cardinal is important,” said Naomi Maraviles, student Vice President of Radio Cardinal.
“This will easily help us spread information to the students, faculty, staff and even to people outside the Institute. For the internet radio does not have a geographical limitation.”
With Radio Cardinal, Mapua will be among the universities and colleges that operate their own radio station to serve as a laboratory for media and communication programs. This includes the University of Santo Tomas (UST) which operates UST Tiger Radio, and DZUP 1602, operated by the University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD).
Radio Cardinal will be having its test and maiden broadcast on July 14 & 15 from 8AM to 5PM and can be accessed here. (Hector MJC Brizuela, with contributions from Naomi Joy Maraviles)
