WXYC, UNC's student-run radio station, is hiring new DJs for spring 2020 who are eager to explore new music and expand their tastes.
WXYC broadcasts live from the Frank Porter Graham Student Union 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Not only do they broadcast on their FM radio station, 89.3 FM, but they are credited with being the first radio station in the world to broadcast on the internet.
The station will hold an interest meeting on Jan. 8 on the Wilson Library stairs at 6 p.m., where interested applicants will learn more about the station, the WXYC mission and what is expected from new DJs. At the end of the meeting, those interested will get a link to the application and the opportunity to pick a time slot for a short, 10-minute interview on Jan. 8 or Jan. 9.
WXYC will also be holding an open house from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., right before the interest meeting, in the station's headquarters which are at the back of the third floor of the Union. At this open house, those interested can tour the station and have any of their questions answered. No prior DJ experience is necessary, and any current UNC students, including graduate students and first year students, are encouraged to apply.
Senior Elinor Walker is the station manager of WXYC. She said that WXYC is a free-form radio station, which means that they are not bound by block programming.
