WJCU receives local honor

October 29th, 2009

John Carroll University’s radio station, WJCU, was recognized by Cleveland Scene Magazine in the Best of Cleveland 2009 awards.

The radio station was named in the “Best Reasons to Turn on the Radio” category.

Mitch Kapka was awarded “Best Tour Guide to the Ultimate Riff” for his WJCU show, Kick Out the Jams, which airs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.

Mark Krieger, WJCU’s general manager, noted that the Cleveland area has many great university and non-commercial radio stations.

“It’s a great place to be doing non-commercial radio because the bar is so high,” said Krieger.
