WSIE-FM News and the Mass Communications Department Curriculum.
Donald, Ralph R.
The Department of Mass Communications at the Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville (SIUE) has direct oversight responsibility for radio station WSIE, a National Public Radio affiliate and the second-highest-rated public radio station in the state of Illinois. WSIE employs just five full-time radio professionals. The great majority of the workers are SIUE students. Mass communications students begin their relationship with WSIE by volunteering and, after completing core courses, they can become part-time employees in either the production or news departments. Students in an upper-division Electronic Media News course also work at the station as part of the course requirements. Students working at WSIE have the opportunity to make many connections with nearby Saint Louis media professionals and prominent newsmakers. (RS)
