WSJU Radio, by Jeff Weiser

WSJU Radio at www.wsjuradio.org is the website for the St. John's University student radio station. The website front page features a large, color, blinking title banner with the station letters superimposed over photos of the present and past on-air and managing staff. There are six categories for users including Listen Live!, About Us, Departments, Staff, Contact Us and Promo. This website is a work in progress because the listen live function is not yet working. WSJU radio is in the process of working out the administrative and technical details before it will be available live, online. So if you click on the Listen Live! category you are directed to a message saying "stay updated on WSJUradio.org --our internet broadcasting link will be posted soon!"
The other categories provide a description of the radio station and what sorts of programming is offered, a roster of key staff member, and a page listing email addresses, station phone numbers and link addresses to MySpace and Facebook.
As of now, the WSJU website is being maintained by the student Production and IT director and it changes infrequently. As is, it is well constructed, attractive looking and easy to maneuver. There is no present programming available, but I am told that will change when and if the station gets the go ahead to broadcast live on the internet.
While not presently available online, WSJU radio is broadcast to campus buildings and dormitories on the Queens, NY campus.
