Question 2: Amongst the many ways that there are to promote events on campus and promote events..my outlet would be to have evenst that bring studnets together. Game nights, parties, an fundraisers are good ways to get students involved and informed. with all of there things, students will not only know the informations first hand but it will also spread through work of mouth.
Question 3: No i do not feel that our programing will please university administration because it isnt diverse nor is it very informative. Most of our programs disciuss what goes on in campus, but people need to also know what is going on around them in their communites. Innorder to get an FM station i feel that we need to reach the quality of radio stations like BLI that adress a community not jsut a group of people
Question 2: I do agree with what the article stands for becuse a jornalist job is to deliver what is the publics right to know. Without jornalist many of u woudl be in the dark about what goes on in our communities. i feel in the US journalist stand for providing information. Unlike other countries, their journalist live in fear as to what they can published or exposed. and Us jsornalist make sure that they share as much with the public as they know. topics that journalist should cover are information reguarding our govornment and foreign affairs
Question 3: i feel that journalist should move with the flow of the public and become more involved in bloging becuse people no matter what need to be informed. I have not been too involved in the movement of civic journalism, but as society is moving in that direction i know i will be faced to use it in the near future.
I think journalists stand for the people here in the U.S. One great and fundamental aspect of journalism in the U.S. is that the public can hear all kinds of news and opinion, both good and bad. The press are privet, not state own, so they would not obviously stand for certain kind of political power. The journalists have more freedom on reporting and criticizing. All kinds of voices can be heard, therefore, a public sphere is created and the journalists are more prone to the public and justice.

If an on air disk jockey made a negative reference to me or about me and my neighborhood, I would be offended but at the same can’t do anything about it. One thing I can say we are all entitled to our own opinions but at a place of work and business especially where people are listening, it’s quite disrespectful and should be taken into the hands of those who are over them.
No one ever knows the reason why certain people are in the position that they are in and disk jockeys should be held accountable for their actions on air. Being on air is their job, and it must be done in decency and in order. Many times we overlook those who are in that type of position because of their title but we must treat each other with respect at all times. His punishment was a little harsh but he was still held accountable for his actions.
I would hosts many types of engaging events such as live concerts by recording artists and during those nights that the recording artist would perform I would promote the upcoming artist on and off campus. I would use that as a tool to promote not only their talent but that would give the radio station good feedback from those who are outside of the Old Westbury community.
If we had a FM station I personally believe we wouldn’t get too many listeners. In today’s communities, we like to hear things that pertain to us and what we like to do. Not saying OWWR doesn’t meet that standard but it’s always about making some type of connection with your listeners. For example, many people listen to the Wendy Williams show that comes on 107.5 WBLS because there is some type interest that we as her listeners get out of that show. Same should be with OWWR. I think that the station pleases the university administration. I would follow the FCC practices because those who are really serious about making this a career it would give them a heads up of how to do so.
