Campus radio station broadcasts remotely from Arena's Deli in Newark
WVUD, a student media group and registered student organization overseen by the University Student Centers at the University of Delaware, presented a two-hour remote broadcast of the Blue Hen Sports Cage, its flagship sports talk radio show, on Thursday evening, May 4, at Arena's on Main Street.
Coordinating with the University’s athletic department to get coaches and athletes to stop by for live interviews, WVUD filled the restaurant, exposing many new people to the radio station, as well.
"This event was a great collaboration between WVUD's Sports Department and Delaware athletics,” said Teddy Gelman, WVUD sports director. “The opportunity to talk to quality programs is excellent for both the student-athletes, coaches, and my team. We look forward to future events with Delaware athletics."
Among those in attendance for the interviews were Greta Nauck, field Hockey All-American for the NCAA Division I national champion Blue Hens; Danny Rocco, new head football coach; Rolf van de Kerkhof, field hockey head coach; Taylor Lister, a junior field hockey player; and Troy Reeder, a football captain.
"It had been a number of years since WVUD Sports had done a remote broadcast from a live location such as Arena's,” said Steve Kramarck, WVUD adviser and associate director, University Student Centers. “It was extremely impressive to see the incredible amount of work that our students put into this event, and it was fantastic to see them rewarded for those efforts with a packed house of enthusiastic Blue Hen athletes, coaches, and fans."
The WVUD radio station is located in the annex of Perkins Student Center. Tune in to 91.3FM WVUD to hear interviews like those aired May 4, or learn more about their work at the website.
