Berkeley Beacon editors went live on WECB Wednesday with the sixth 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. 18 show featured guest appearances from the news and living arts sections, with deputy express editor Tomas Gonzalez and deputy lifestyle editor Katie Redefer. Stories covered include the mailroom overload due to the increase of on-campus students, an upcoming rally against period poverty, and the interview process for the Deputy Title IX Coordinator position.
