- Reboot: The Evan Higgins Story
Many amazing students graduated from King’s this year, but no story touched us like the journey of Evan Higgins. Hear the radio documentary “Reboot: The Evan Higgins Story” to learn about Evan’s inspiring recovery from a near-fatal auto accident and the commitment of his father, Bob, to see him through to this special day. WRKC Station Manager Jessica Mulligan wrote and produced the documentary, available here:
- Award-winning, again! (it never gets old)
What can we say? We’re winners. The Society for Professional Journalists granted us the Mark of Excellence award for Best All-Around Newscast for The News at 5 and Matt Mezzacapo won for his story “Take Back the Night” in the field of Radio News Reporting. Contests are a testament to our students’ devotion to the art of writing and reporting. SPJ contests feature a slew of esteemed colleges and universities in Region One and we snagged two awards. A little validation goes a long way!
- Little Dragon, big sounds
Little Dragon return with a more popular audience-centered record on Numba Rubberband. Though the band can’t help but work into the weird sides of music– sometimes noisy, but always soulful– their contributions on their latest record make you really appreciate their craft in songs like “Let Go” and “Klapp Klapp.” (more…)
- The Pains of being derivative
The Pains of Being Pure at Heart are awesome. Don’t mistake that. But as you’re listening to their new album you may have to remind yourself that it’s not Belle & Sebastian. The New York four-piece make some great songs that pluck the strings of your love of pop, but don’t seem to blow up the work in musical revolution. (more…)
Don't forget, we're part of King's College in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Check out the King's website to find out how you can come to King's as a student or get involved around campus.
