YSU students seek Pepsi grant for internet radio



Published: Tue, October 5, 2010 @ 11:12 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

Four local organizations are in the running for a Pepsi Refresh Grant this month. Three of the four are organizations that competed in September and landed among the top 100 in each of their respective grant categories. The fourth organization, Youngstown State University’s student online radio station, is competing for the first time. Rookery Radio is the result of student demand at the YSU campus. Adviser Adam Earnheardt said about 50 students are currently involved and winning the $50,000 grant would pay for broadcasting equipment, computers, office supplies, furniture, promotions, web site development and software. Earnheardt said the money would help get the program up and running. “What we really are doing is bringing student radio back to YSU in an internet-only platform for now,” Earnheardt said. To vote for Rookery Radio, visit http://www.refresheverything.com/rookeryradio or text 103199 to Pepsi at 73774. Organizations that rolled over from last month include Austintown Fitch High School’s Channel 19, Multiple Sclerosis Dreams and the Rich Center for Autism. Visit www.refresheverything.com and search for each organization to vote. The top 100 in each category will compete in the next month’s competition. The top 10 in each grant category will be awarded their grant.

I thought YSU was a Coke-exclusive campus?

To censoredship: If you looked at the project you would have noted that this is NOT a rinky-dink operation like you suggest. These kids will be using state-of-the-art equipment - only way to get the REAL experience they need to learn radio skills. It's a good thing your not teaching these kids. And the best part about this - none of it is being funded by YSU. Lighten up.

Oh, and are you serious about the link? Of course there's no stream to listen to - that's why their asking for 50k! They have NO EQUIPMENT! For someone who spends a lot of time posting (see censoredship's 900 comments) you should spend a little less time commenting and more time reading and "critically" thinking.
