Students and alumni fight to bring broadcasting back to UB https://lkrlt.org/students-and-alumni-fight-to-bring-broadcasting-back-to-ub/ Thu, 22 Sep 2022 03:28:00 +0000 https://lkrlt.org/students-and-alumni-fight-to-bring-broadcasting-back-to-ub/ The campus radio station is a hallmark of the American college experience.

The campus radio station is a hallmark of the American college experience. Since FM broadcasting began to take off in the 1970s, college DJs have provided an alternative to mainstream culture, influencing the music students listen to and talk about – all from dimly lit rooms and basements. hidden on American college campuses.

With the advent of the internet, social media, and music streaming services, it’s easy to dismiss broadcasting as past its prime. But there are plenty of student-run radio stations that still do well, even within the SUNY system. Stations in Binghamton, Purchase, Geneseo and more are still broadcasting daily.

For the past three years, UB – the largest public university in New York State – has been deprived of it.

It’s certainly not a lack of student interest – ask Ana Litvinenko, the second who tried to bring broadcasting back to UB.

Litvinenko started the UB Broadcast Club with the intention of reviving WRUB, UB’s now-defunct radio station. WRUB folded in 2019 when Subcommittee 1 (or SBI), the nonprofit student organization that funded the station, was closed. In the three years since SBI’s disbandment, WRUB has yet to be successfully replaced.

“Coming to a school like Buffalo and seeing how big it is, and then realizing there’s no train station… it’s like, what are you doing?” said Litvinenko.

Then a freshman, the criminology major was looking for a way to share her love of music with the student body — and create a sense of community.

“It’s a great way to bring people together,” Litvinenko said. “And who wouldn’t want to tune in and hear student news, or listen to great music?”

So last spring, she took matters into her own hands. The first broadcast club meeting drew approximately 30 attendees, and the number of interested students continues to grow through social media and flyers posted on campus. But it was not easy to take off. The club still hasn’t received any funding or recognition from the student body. According to Litvinenko, it was difficult to get the station’s approval; she applied and was turned down twice.

“They are extremely skeptical about it. And no one is ready to give us space, no one is ready to make room for it,” she said.

Litvinenko isn’t the only one trying to fill the void left by WRUB. His efforts caught the attention of the team at Subject Media, an online collective that calls itself “Buffalo’s student-run media empire.”

The website, founded by a collective of UB alumni, was created from the ashes of WRUB and Generation Magazine, a campus publication that also lost funding with the fall of SBI. It features podcasts, blogs, and online radio shows from current and former UB students.

The Spectrum has covered the University at Buffalo since 1950, your donation today could help #SaveStudentNewsrooms. Please consider donating today.

“It didn’t seem like the university or the SA were that interested in keeping the station running, so we just decided to do it ourselves,” said Mike Vago, one of the alumni who started Subject. Media.

In 1993, Vago co-founded the most recent version of WRUB. Being part of the station has had such an impact on him that – even 25 years after graduating – he is still dedicated to bringing the college radio experience to UB.

“Leading WRUB in the 90s taught me how to run an organization, how to motivate people, how to solve problems when you don’t have money,” Vago said. “WRUB was really the beginning of my life as a creative person.”

The power of broadcasting has changed a lot since Vago was in college; people turn to streaming services and social media to tell them what to listen to, not FM radio. But he hopes Subject Media can recreate the dynamic of WRUB, where students had the influence and power to share whatever they wanted with their audience.

Vago and Subject Media encouraged Litvinenko to join the Subject team. But for now, Litvinenko still hopes to launch a traditional radio station on campus, complete with a professional studio and an FM broadcast.

“I just feel like there are so many opportunities and the school just seems to refuse to turn it on,” Litvinenko said.

With or without university approval, equipment, or dedicated space, Litvinenko and the UB Broadcast Club are determined to bring radio back to campus. They’re set to host more get-togethers throughout the semester, where all budding DJs are welcome to bring their passion to the fledgling station.

Commercial radio helped usher in the modern age of mass communication.

MONTREAL, September 20, 2022 /CNW/ – Commercial Radio in Canada started with Montreal station XWA. From its first broadcasts until the creation of a public system in 1932, a radio craze swept the country, establishing a new mass communications industry that would radically alter the way Canadians consumed news and entertainment. .

Today, the Honorable Steven Guilbeault, Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, commemorated the national historic significance of the early days of commercial broadcasting in Canada.

Commercial radio in Canada got its start with the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of Canada in 1918. From its rudimentary facilities in Montreal, this company experimented with wireless broadcasting and obtained a license for the XWA station in December 1919. A year later, the station began a regular program of transmissions.

From this single station, an industry grew which, over the next 12 years, ushered in the modern era of mass communication. In 1922 there were 39 radio stations in Canada. By 1931, that number had grown to 173,200. Even in the midst of the Great Depression, the radio industry was booming.

The Canadian Broadcasting Commission, from Canada first public broadcaster, was established in 1932 and with it the era of exclusively private radio ended, but it was a period that laid the foundations of Canadian broadcasting for the 20e century. In just over a decade, radio has grown from a niche hobby to a major cultural industry.

The government of Canadathrough the Historic Sites and Monuments Commission Canada, recognizes significant people, places and events that have shaped our country as a way to help Canadians and youth reconnect with their past. The national historical commemoration program is largely driven by public nominations.

We invite Canadians to learn more about our history – from lighthouses to battlefields, from historic neighborhoods to Indigenous contributions to Canadathere is an incredible variety of places and stories to discover.

The HD Radio system is the world’s highest performing digital FM system, operating in North America and other countries since 2002. More than 2,700 radio stations deliver 4,700 digital audio programs to active listeners, writes Ashruf El- Dinary, SVP, Xperi Digital Platforms and HD Radio

Digital radio broadcasting is an exciting new service for AM and FM radio stations. When digital broadcasting technologies were introduced nearly 20 years ago, an era of nearly limitless new programming opportunities for broadcasters and their listeners was ushered in. With proper implementation and support, digital broadcasting enables radio stations to penetrate deeper into local markets with compelling new content. , extended audio and data services and 21st century multimedia formats.

Many people confuse digital broadcasting with radio streaming services, but it’s very different because it makes much more efficient use of the broadcast spectrum and allows radio operators to deliver more robust content and new services to local listeners. This is particularly important as local community broadcasting provides reliable essential information and entertainment services to all listeners, free of charge and data charges.

So, unlike streaming, digital radio broadcasting is not just enhanced broadcasting, but provides equitable access to information for all. In addition, it allows to increase the content of the programs and the multimedia services with a better quality than the analogical radio.

With growing worldwide adoption, several digital radio broadcasting standards have been defined, some of which are already operational in countries in North America, Europe and Asia.

In most markets where digital services have been introduced, digital radio has generated new business opportunities for radio station owners, allowing radio to compete more effectively with other communication technologies.

It has also spawned services that simultaneously benefit broadcasters and listeners, including new audio channels, real-time emergency alert notifications, text and visual information related to the current program, and data services. additional providing enhanced traffic notifications, weather reports and other local content.

With these additional digital channels now available to consumers, radio stations can target audience segments more closely, while still serving their core audience.

Digital radio comes to India

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has authorized new FM auctions to support digital radio services in 2018. According to this consultation report, radio stations are allowed to use their spectrum allocation for both analogue and digital services.

In early August 2022, the India Cellular and Electronics Association (ICEA) and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) released a report by Ernst & Young on the future of digital broadcasting in India.

Many of the topics discussed in this report parallel other digital radio markets around the world, including the need for a smooth transition to digital operations, the importance of accessible consumer receivers, enabling notifications emergency through digital radio broadcasts and the need to limit additional license fees to broadcasters.

The HD Radio™ broadcast technology aligns with the key findings and recommendations set out in the report.

The HD Radio system is the world’s highest performing digital FM system, operating in North America and other countries since 2002. More than 2,700 radio stations deliver 4,700 digital audio programs to active listeners.

Collectively, these radio groups provide over 41 million hours of digital radio programming to over 400 million people. With nearly 100 million radio receivers sold, millions of consumers have excellent experiences with digital services, as highlighted by the IPSOS 2021 survey on consumer satisfaction with HD Radio products.

Over 96% of respondents were satisfied with HD Radio products and services with clear support (92%) for clear reception and better sound quality than analog radio. These excellent experiences translate to 94% of HD Radio listeners recommending the products to family and friends.

As digital radio expands in India, radio stations will be able to expand their services and enable new technologies, delivering content to a larger portion of the population.

With HD Radio broadcasting, radio listeners across North America have access to up to 4 digital audio programs on the same radio station transmission, supporting programming in multiple languages ​​and building communities. Each of these audio services supports synchronized metadata for the program via text and image transmission protocols.

Emergency Alert Notifications provide real-time notification of rescue warnings. And data service protocols highlight broadcasters’ ability to support communication with connected cars and IoT platforms. Advertisers also benefit from HD Radio services through high-value visual advertisements on the radio screen. Overall, HD Radio services offer benefits for broadcasting and exciting new services for consumers.

A key takeaway from Ernst & Young’s report concerns the regulatory policy needed to support a smooth transition to all-digital broadcasting. What would that require? that analog transmissions and digital transmissions operate simultaneously on the same frequency assignment without interruption or interference to either service.

This simulcast requirement would ensure that listeners will continue to receive current analog programming on existing radio receivers, while new digital receivers will be able to access both analog programming and new digital services. This approach, recommended by E&Y, enables a smooth transition to digital radio, which HD Radio services have successfully implemented in North America.

Another key finding of the report highlights the need for low cost radio products, especially for the integration of digital radio services into mobile handsets. The integration of mobile phones is essential to the success of any new digital technology. After all, radio listening on mobile phones accounts for about 75% of radio listening in India.

The integration will ensure everyone has access to services and information, and this is also something that HD Radio has achieved: they have successfully integrated digital radio services into mobile handsets, a good example of this is their integration in the BeatBoy phone model which sells in the Philippines for around 1600 rupees (20 USD).

Another focus of the success of digital radio, especially in India, is to support “Make in India” initiatives. The National Electronics Policy 2019 (NPE 2019) has prioritized the electronics manufacturing sector as one of the important pillars of the Government of India’s “Make in India” and “Digital India” programs. Total investment in electronics manufacturing for 2025-2026 is US$300 billion and mobile phone manufacturing itself has been assigned a target of US$180 billion, of which US$55 billion US dollars for exports and US$125 billion for domestic consumption.

The HD Radio team is experienced in building manufacturing ecosystems and actively contributes to this goal by working with its hardware development, software development and testing partners in India.

We have established strong relationships with our partners in India to integrate our digital radio technology into cars and mobile phones, which will provide access to the growing number of export markets for brands and manufacturers. We also see a strong opportunity with MEITY’s Center of Excellence initiatives to create consumer electronics designs for domestic markets as well as for export to the world.

These are just a few of the ways HD Radio technology not only sets best practices for digital radio implementation, but also offers a global paradigm for how digital radio can connect broadcasters. and listeners and make digital radio accessible and equitable for every community.

Celebrating 100 years of the first radio broadcast in Chile. The Museum of Science and Technology presents a technical sample of the various radial components of the past decades. Also in the halls of the El Mercurio newspaper building is a reconstruction of the first project undertaken in 1922 by Enrique Sazzi and Arturo Salazar.

Radio joined the experiment and was broadcast in this format from the Museum of Science and Technology. About the subject, we discussed with researchers Renato Menares and Francisco Garrido. Both are in charge of technical radio broadcasts.

Watch the interview with Renato Menares and Francisco Garrido.

a century

Renato Menares is a collector of radios, his passion for restoring them led him to search for various radio elements from different years, a large part of his collection is exhibited in the museum. “We discussed the possibility of reproducing the first radio transmissions with components from that era. We are building an AM transmission system.

He further added: “I have been a collector for over 60 years, I have been to Persian fairs looking for old radios and records, I have elements of some of them”,

Francisco Garrido, for his part, explains the characteristics of these radial pieces. “The gear driving this transmission is outdated, basically we have one from 1997 and the most modern one running in 1942.”

“The idea is to make it a real broadcast, reproducing the style of Enrique Sazzi and Arturo Salazar, because they didn’t have a recipe for making a transmitter, they were testing, experimenting”He underlined.

The development of radio a century after its first national broadcast

Regarding technological advances and the development of the radio medium, Garrido explains that: “In 1940 the first FM transmitters began operating in the United States, a sea change as they produced better quality than AM with less interference and noise.”

He continued, “Improving the quality of the microphone made the voice sound clearer. Today it’s not so clear because the technology has changed so much, what is AM radio, we don’t hear it much.

“Another way of transmitting over long distances was improvisation, using satellites and the airwaves. It was in the 1920s that the first radio standards also appeared and allowed each station to have a fixed frequency and not interfere with each other. It gives an order in matters of mass radio transmission,” he concluded.

TECHNOLOGICAL advancements over the past few decades have given people unprecedented access to information.

A wealth of information and entertainment is readily available these days, whether you catch up on the news by reading the newspaper, watching television, browsing websites on your cell phones or computers, or listening to the radio. .

Broadcasting has had a profound impact on society since its conception in the early 20th century and despite the emergence of digital platforms, it remains one of the most powerful communication tools to date.

According to Marrill Chunggat, Deputy Chief Director of Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) Section of Radio Televisyen Malaysia, Sarawak’s radio services continue to play an important role in reaching the masses.

“It is especially in rural areas which do not yet have access to digital, but which can be reached by the reception of radio frequency bands, waves or transmissions either by shortwave (SW) or by modulation of frequency (FM),” he told the Borneo Post.

He said some areas in Sarawak, Miri in particular, still use SW reception facilities, with transmissions being made through the RTM Kajang branch transmitter, which is still in operation.

He observed that after digitization, more and more regions gained access to free-to-air digital terrestrial television (DTT) such as myFreeview.

“However, the SW band is still needed, especially in interiors, for broadcasting information and keeping listeners up to date with what’s going on.

“Due to Sarawak’s geographic and demographic factors, the role of radio is always important in conveying information, messages, requests and announcements of local activities,” he said.

“Diversity is strength”

Under RTM Sarawak Radio Section, there are six radio stations: RTM Kuching, RTM Sri Aman (SRI AMANfm), RTM Sibu (SIBUfm), RTM Bintulu (BINTULUfm) and RTM Miri (MIRIfm) and RTM Limbang (LIMBANGfm).

Under RTM Kuching are five radio services: SARAWAKfm, which broadcasts in Bahasa Melayu Sarawak 24 hours a day – except for the hour-long show in Bahasa Melanau, starting at 2 p.m. every Sunday; Chinese REDfm and English REDfm; WAIFM Iban; and WAIfm Bidayuh, which comprises three main Bidayuh dialects, namely Bau Jagoi, Bukar Sadong and Biatah.

SRI AMANfm and SIBUfm broadcast in three languages: Bahasa Malay, Iban and Chinese; RTM Bintulu air to Bahasa Malaysia and Iban; MIRIfm in Bahasa Malaysia, Iban, Chinese, Kayan and Kenyah; while LIMBANGfm covers four languages, namely Bahasa Malaysia, Lun Bawang, Bisaya and Iban.

Marrill, standing next to REDfm (English) DJ Azrani Azmi @ DJ Zack at the RTM Sarawak Radio studio.

Marrill said the strength of RTM Sarawak can certainly be attributed to the diversity of its multilingual programs such as Bahasa Melayu Sarawak, Iban, Bidayuh, Kayan, Kenyah, Bisaya and Lun Bawang, as well as some slots broadcast in the Salako, Melanau languages. and Kedayan. .

“The use of ethnic languages ​​in the service enables more efficient broadcasting and at the same time, they reach the listeners not only in terms of broadcasting information, but also entertainment and local culture,” he said. .

In accordance with the guidelines

Marrill also said that the broadcasting guidelines had set out some standard procedures to ensure that content and presentations would always meet high quality standards and also meet the taste of listeners.

“Program content must also be broadcast responsibly by ensuring that each station’s radio program enjoys the trust of all levels of society, while preserving the image in the rapid and authentic dissemination of information.

“These constantly updated guidelines are what differentiate RTM Radio’s performance to stay relevant based on technological developments to reach more listeners so that every government policy can be implemented, as well as to provide entertainment that covers the preference of all ages, especially in terms of relevance to the needs of the target groups,” he said.

WAIFM Bidayuh DJ George Martin Howell

Marrill also pointed out that radio broadcasts have continued to evolve with technological development in the digital age to meet the needs of listeners.

“RTM is constantly improving its capabilities not only in terms of equipment, but also expertise and skills in the implementation of delivery tasks and services.

“Through the ‘RTMKlik’ app, our radio services can be heard online in addition to being accessible via myFreeview.

“The use of facilities such as podcasts has also been developed and so far (it) offers core services such as NASIONALfm, TRAXXfm, AIfm and MINNALfm before expanding to other services, depending preferences of our listeners,” he said.

Never stop reaching out

WAIFM Iban DJ Harold Ken Micheal @ Bunyau

While not having the number of listeners tuned to RTM stations, Marrill estimated the number of those following live streams of certain events on Facebook to be around 50,000 to nearly 600,000. viewers.

“For example, 596,000 viewers tuned in to ‘Anugerah Carta Sapa Juara 2019 WAIfm Iban’, while another show called ‘Juh Bermukun SARAWAKfm’ attracted 45,000 viewers.”

He said that unlike the RTM headquarters in Angkasapuri, Kuala Lumpur and radio stations in Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah had neither the facilities nor the expertise that would enable them to obtain the statistics on the number of radio listeners.

“This can be influenced by geographic factors, population distribution, logistics and facilities as well as internet access.

“However, earlier this year there was a proposal to collaborate with strategic partners Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) and Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) to get the statistics on the number of listeners,” he said. , adding that the proposal was still ongoing. discussion.

He said RTM Sarawak will continue to reach out to its radio listeners by working to speed up news delivery, as well as channeling information through family news slots with agencies to broadcast more widely so that ‘they can be heard in every corner of Sarawak, especially in rural and inland areas.

SARAWAKfm DJ Mohd Azree Haidir

“The loyalty of our listeners is greatly appreciated by the establishment of partner radios which are not only a source for various activities, but also for participating in field broadcasts.

“Continued audience feedback, including constructive criticism, shows that the radio is still close to the hearts of listeners and remains relevant using the latest and conventional facilities,” Marrill said.

Major catalyst of the creative industry

Marrill said the radio continued to play its role during the Covid-19 pandemic and would continue after the pandemic.

“Radio has provided opportunities and space, particularly through the Malaysian Creative Industry Stimulus Package (Prisma) initiative of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, ensuring that creative industry players affected by the pandemic are in able to continue their work and contributions to the industry with new rates.

“Various programs are also broadcast through radio shows that provide space and opportunities for industry-related entrepreneurs and traders, especially those involving support services such as the audio field.

“For example, they have the opportunity to participate in field programs, on-site radio, competitions, etc.”

DJ Azrani Azmi, otherwise known as DJ Zack

Marrill added that programs and posting slots related to government policies such as government assistance and initiatives to help those who had been affected by the pandemic, were also being aired.

On RTM Sarawak’s plans to continue reaching out to its radio listeners, Marrill said that as part of the RTM Strategic Plan 2021-2025, this would take into account putting in place long-term plans, especially on strengthening management and developing human capital; improving the policy framework and governance, including work processes; strengthen broadcasting services and operations; enhance the quality of content and distribution channels; and strengthen promotion, marketing and revenue generation to become a major catalyst in the creative industry, especially in high-quality, high-value creative entertainment content.

Longtime Peterborough radio personality Gord Gibb went off the air on Friday afternoon with his final shift on 100.5 Fresh FM, ending a 46-year broadcasting career.

He began his first radio shift in Peterborough at 6 p.m. on August 3, 1976 on CHEX-AM 980 at the age of 19.

“The city has come such a long way (since). Lansdowne Place was not there, for example. Monaghan Road Sears was the only game in town. No carrying space. It was basically farmland from Spillsbury, you had the Rockhaven and Sir Sandford Fleming but nothing more,” Gibb recalled in an interview with Teresa Kaszuba on “The Morning Show on CHEX.”

“Lansdowne was two lanes, one east, one west, with no turning lane. Can you imagine becoming a business with two lanes holding all the traffic? The city has come a long way since then.

He got his first taste of radio at the age of 15, while a high school student at Lindsay, and was given a chance behind the mic.

“It really is a public service. It’s like being an MP without a pension plan. You serve the public, you inform it, you entertain it, you animate its events. It really is public service,” Gibb told Kaszuba.

“The downside, at least lately, is that broadcasting has shifted to a more corporate function. There’s a lot of off-market scrutiny. Radio has become a brand now. But it all comes down to local guys like Pete and Dani (on Fresh) and Brian and Luke on The Wolf, entertaining the local community and serving the local community. And that has never changed and never will.”

Gibb is the longtime announcer for the Peterborough Petes Ontario Hockey League games at the Peterborough Memorial Centre, often heading straight to the arena after his radio shift, taking naps while the teams warm up .

Gibb, who has been working from a home studio since the pandemic, is also a voiceover writer and announcer. He has his own oldies internet radio station yourkawarthaoldies.com which was launched in 2015.
