Purdue University Global Radio is a digital radio broadcast system (webcast) for PG students, staff, and faculty available through PG Campus (students and faculty) and online.
With the station’s launch, PG Radio became one of the growing number of colleges and universities around the country to operate digital radio stations. Digital stations offer the advantage of better sound quality and reception, as well as the capability to provide on-screen support information (i.e., programming details, album cover art). Digital stations do not require call letters and are not regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The goal of Purdue University Global Radio is not only to entertain and inform but also to provide a training ground for students in business and information technology. Each term, students work as interns, honing their skills by becoming on-air personalities, advertising sales people, technicians, and program or website developers.
Purdue University Global Radio is entirely student-run and features music as well as programming by students, staff, and faculty on a variety of topics, including books, current affairs, travel, business, University events, and messages from station personalities and listeners.
Talk programs are typically pre-recorded, but they give listeners the chance to share their thoughts and ask questions in order- prompted ways.
