Member’s of Temple’s broadcast community can be found in the WHIP radio station studio, tucked away on the first floor of the Tech Center. WHIP radio has opened many doors for students involved with the station and allows them to broadcast their talents on air.
Dante Smith, WHIP radio’s General Manager, says, “I think with WHIP, we have all been given a platform and opportunity to broadcast and it’s important to brand yourself.”
Zach Gelb, Director of Remote Broadcasting, also adds, “WHIP has gotten me a lot in life. It gives me a platform to talk 5 days a week doing a show. The station has done great for me personally and does great for many other people who help with WHIP.”
WHIP radio is extremely diverse in its style, genres of music played on air, and the people who are involved with the station. Smith says that they play all genres include Hip-hop, Jazz, and Pop. Gelb adds that being on iHeart radio has opened many doors for the station and allows it to be broadcast all over the world.
Many Temple students aren’t aware of the various opportunities that WHIP radio station has to offer. Not only can students act as DJs, they can also be a part of the programming, advertising and news departments.
WHIP Radio encourages Temple students to get involved and experience the world of radio broadcast, both in front of the mic and behind the scenes.
