The Berkeley Beacon New Hour 11/6: Registration crash, Turning Point speaker, and Pete Buttigieg


Listen to “The Berkeley Beacon on WECB 11/6: Registration crash, Turning Point speaker, and Pete Buttigieg” on Spreaker.

Berkeley Beacon editors went live on WECB Wednesday with the latest episode of The Berkeley Beacon News Hour—a morning radio program dedicated to discussing both campus and city news with a splice of music in between.

The show airs on WECB at 8 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and is hosted by Visual Managing Editor Kyle Bray, Copy Managing Editor Abigail Hadfield, News Editor Stephanie Purifoy, and Editor-in-Chief Chris Van Buskirk.


On the Nov. 6 episode, deputy express editor Tomas Gonzalez joins the show to breakdown the class registration crash, the Pete Buttigieg event at the Emerson Colonial Theater and Turning Point bringing a speaker to campus.

We choose information accessibility

News and the truth are under constant attack in our current moment, just when they are needed the most. The Beacon’s quality, fact-based accounting of historic events has never mattered more, and our editorial independence is of paramount importance. We believe journalism is a public good that should be available to all regardless of one’s ability to pay for it. But we can not continue to do this without you. Every little bit, whether big or small, helps fund our vital work — now and in the future.
