The Berkeley Beacon News Hour: RA Contracts, Fee Amendment, Boylston Street Construction Update


The Berkeley Beacon hosted the inaugural episode of The Berkeley Beacon News Hour Monday—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 Berkeley Beacon News Hour marks an expanding effort by The Beacon to reach audiences on a variety of platforms. 

The Sept. 30 show covered a spar between resident assistants and the administration over contract changes, Student Government Association Executive Treasurer Abigail Semple’s fee amendment, and an update on the Boylston Street sidewalk construction.
