WJSV Radio Station


When I started high(secondary) school, I joined my high school’s radio station, WJSV. I joined from the bottom, just helping out with some wiring here and there. I spent most of my time in high school at the radio station, and I eventually became a part of the executive staff. As time went on, I continued to help with more events such as concerts and other events. The thing I helped the most with though is the IT systems at the radio station. I helped ensure our equipment was running as it should be.

In my senior year of high school, I had become the station manager, running the station of about 30 people. I helped revise our draconian licensing process, so our DJs learned what they really needed to effectively run their radio show, and not technical information that was useless to them. I also encouraged students to develop their own unique playlists for their show to create more varied and personalised programming.

The big thing that I did to help modernise our radio station is I brought our station online. I set up internet audio streaming via shoutcast that was added to WJSV’s website. Listeners could now listen to us anywhere in the world, regardless of where they were. Besides that, I modernised our DJing system via a new piece of software called Megaseg, so that we could dynamically update our playlists and organise our radio shows more effectively.
