Florida A&M station investigation yields non-students


MicrophoneResults of a just-completed investigation at university-owned and student-run WANM-FM found some of the on-air personalities actually weren’t students. WCTV-TV reports that a year ago FAMU students told them they’d been complaining to school administrators because non-students were taking several on-air positions, while according to FAMU’s handbook, because part of the operating budget comes from the Student Government Association, all on-air personalities have to be full or part time students.

A list of seven names was submitted. Two were alumni who graduated from FAMU five years ago. Another graduated seven years ago and a fourth, three years ago. Three other on air personalities on the list never attended FAMU, noted the story.
