Journalist/Radio DJ Jennifer Waits (CLICK TO ENLARGE)

On the November 7th, 2011 edition of “The Freak Power Ticket,” producer/host Ted Coe was joined by journalist Jennifer Waits, who writes about the medium of radio for two online blogs, Radio Survivor and Spinning Indie.

Herself a DJ at the college-based community-radio station KFJC-FM at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California, Jennifer Waits has distinguished herself as an authority on the “college-radio crisis” caused by the recent shutdown of three major university stations, KUSF (San Francisco), WRVU (Nashville), and KTRU (Houston). She’s also well versed in the history of college radio, standout initiatives from these mostly “non-commercial educational” licensees, and the overall importance of university-based media, all of which she shares during an engaging hourlong conversation.
