COM 150: Introduction to Radio Production

This performance-based course introduces students to the world of radio production. Instruction in the basic fundamentals of radio allows students to experience the hands-on processes involved, including equipment operation and editing software, mixing and editing techniques and the production process. With this knowledge, students create a variety of live and edited projects including promos and a weekly show on WCC's own radio station, Orchard Radio. A brief overview of the history of radio and an understanding of the terminology complete this course.

What Students Say About Online Classes

“I was very reluctant to take online classes, but because of my various roles as a wife, mother, full-time employee, and student my time was limited…. Online classes have helped with managing my time in these various roles, and have been a true blessing to both my family and my learning experience at WCC.”

—F. Robertson
