  • KTCU co-managers put ‘college twist’ on the radio

    first_imgLinkedin Riane Clevelandhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/riane-cleveland/ Twitter printIn Moudy South, you can hear rock, rap and other music as you walk down the first-floor hallway.The music comes from KTCU, the on-campus radio station, but those sounds didn’t play at all a couple of years ago. Texas may be a country state, but playing one genre of music can sometimes get old. Once the previous management departed, co-managers Geoffrey Craig and Janice McCall decided to give KTCU a much-needed change.Prior to the change, country music was the main genre played at KTCU, McCall said. Because of that, the station saw a decline in listeners as well as complaints from those in the community.Now, the duo has focused on putting the “college” back in college radio. McCall and Craig widened the station’s horizons, deciding to play more modern music such as rock, rap and electronic. KTCU is located on the first floor of Moudy South.

The door is open.”Carlos Rebollar, a sophomore music major, is in his first-year working as a radio jockey. Although he said everything was complicated at first, he learned his way around the station after shadowing other students. Rebollar said that Craig and McCall are very supportive when working with students. Students like Carlos Rebollar get hands on experience working at KTCU. Photo by Riane Cleveland“They really make you feel comfortable in the whole training process,” Rebollar said. “The first time I spoke on air, I was scared, but they coach you through it.”Rebollar said although his first time on–air wasn’t the best, both Craig and McCall encouraged him to perservere.“They really made me feel comfortable in the position before I started working it,” Rebollar said. “They’re awesome.”KTCU now has 29 student workers this semester, the most the station has ever had. This accomplishment is due to Craig and McCall’s efforts to be an inclusive and multifaceted station. KTCU can be heard on FM 88.7 and through the TuneIn or TCU mobile apps.

  • HSE review on sex offender working at Donegal school due in March

    first_img WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest Facebook A complete review by the HSE into how a caretaker on the sex offenders register remained working at a Donegal school and was able to rape and sexually assault four boys should be complete in MarchMichael Ferry abused the four boys on an almost weekly basis, some for as long as four years despite receiving a six-month suspended sentence for sexual abuse in 2002.Michael Ferry  abused the boys between 1990 and 2005 even though he was on the sex offenders register between 2002 and 2007.After sentencing him to 14 years at the Central Criminal Court last summer, Mr Justice Paul Carney said the authorities must have been aware Ferry had a conviction for a similar offence.Justice Minister Alan Shatter asked the Garda Commissioner to investigate if, after the first conviction, gardaí and the HSE had contact with the school management.He said that he was calling on those in charge of this school to explain how Ferry continued to be employed as a caretaker in the school and whether at any time they considered the risk he posed to children.The HSE said it has established a review team to assess the response of the HSE /former NWHB services following a referral from An Garda Síochána in 2002 relating to Michael Ferry and the intervening period to July 2011.The Executive said the report is expected to be completed by March 2012.Ferry, of Bunbeg, Gweedore, was working at Ard Scoil Mhuire in Derrybeg, a former school building used for Irish language courses.The boys were not pupils at the Irish language school.Last summer, the directors of Coláiste Cholmcille said it was “factually incorrect” to say Ferry continued in his role as caretaker after 2002.

  • Kohli softens stance on relationship with Australians

    first_img(REUTERS) – India captain Virat Kohli believes his post-match comments in Dharamsala regarding his friendship with Australian players has been “blown way out of proportion” and clarified they were directed only at a couple of individuals.The hard-fought series witnessed plenty of acrimony, the most notable being Kohli’s criticism of counterpart Steve Smith for gesturing towards his dressing room for guidance on whether to review an lbw decision in the second Test at Bengaluru.Immediately after India clinched the series 2-1 with Tuesday’s win, Kohli said he would not regard any Australian cricketer as a friend “ever again”, going against the good will he felt towards the tourists prior to the first Test.“My answer at the post-match conference has been blown way out of proportion,” the feisty 28-year-old, who is also captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, said on his verified Twitter account yesterday.“I did not categorically say the whole Australian team but only a couple of individuals. I continue to be in good terms with the few guys I know & who I’ve played with at RCB & that doesn’t change.”Kohli’s Bengaluru-based Twenty20 side includes Australians Shane Watson, Travis Head and Billy Stanlake, while pacemen Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson also played for the team under his stewardship last season.Australia captain Smith will lead the Pune-based team in the popular tournament starting on Wednesday while compatriot David Warner leads champions Hyderabad and Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell will skipper the Punjab side.Kohli is facing a race against time to be ready for the start of the tournament as he continues his rehabilitation from the shoulder injury that forced him to miss the fourth and final Test against Australia.last_img read more
