PU radio station to go on air soon

CHANDIGARH: Community radio is all set to go on-air at Panjab University,
with School of Communication Studies ready to broadcast its first
programme within four months. The round-the-clock station is a result of
the Memorandum of Understanding between PU and Broadcast Engineering
Consultants Limited (BECIL) under Union ministry.

The school's chairperson, Dr Mohanmeet Khosla, said, ''The project is in
the final stages of execution. A BECIL team had visited the department on
September 30 to have a look at the infrastructure and identify sites for
installing radio towers.''

There would be two studios — one for live programming and the other as a
back-up for preparing programmes — apart from a panel discussion room, she
added. The equipment required for the station would reportedly be provided

Discussing the programme content, Dr Khosla said, ''Fifty percent will
focus on the lower segments residing in slums in and around the city.
We'll concentrate on development, health and community-related issues that
will help educate and create awareness among the masses.''
