The Berkeley Beacon News Hour: Daniel Hollis, GoFundMe for Smiley, Gaby Dunn


Berkeley Beacon editors went live on WECB Friday with the third 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. 

The Oct. 4 show, which featured a guest appearance from Living Arts Editor Grace Griffin, covered updates on sophomore Daniel Hollis, a student fundraising to give winter housing to a local homeless man, alumna Gaby Dunn’s newest graphic novel, a breakdown of the columns in the living arts section, and the recent layoffs at Sports Illustrated.
