Over President’s Day weekend many familiar faces filled the WXCI station. Every year we host an alumni weekend where past DJs travel back to WXCI to play shows throughout the weekend. Many of our current DJs got a chance to mingle and discuss successful radio tactics with previous DJs. Although there was a forecast of snow, there was a great turnout. We are thankful for everyone who made this reunion a success! We look forward to seeing everyone agaiin next year!
We’re back! Happy to let you know that as of Tuesday, Dec 2nd WXCI has reopened. All live shows have resumed.
There’s still some damage in both studios and the main office, but all members of the station are allowed to enter.
Sorry to let you know that as of Monday, Nov 24th WXCI has been closed. All live shows are postponed for now. Thankfully, our automation computer is still up and running.
Portions of the roof of the Student Center collapsed over the station, causing huge leaks in both studios and the main office. Maintenance has been working at WXCI, but members are not allowed to enter until further notice.
We will keep you posted! (Make sure to subscribe on the right to receive updates.)
International students on WXCI: During a portion of the program “Radio Workshop” aired on 11/18 and 11/19, WXCI reporter and media major Billy Trotta interviewed three foreign exchange students about their experiences in the USA and at WestConn this semester.
A bunch of us from WXCI will be there as MCs, introducing some great local bands, playin’ tunes between the bands, and hanging out all day long with you.
Admission is FREE, but donations are welcome. All donations benefit Ann’s Place, a local cancer support charity.
