“I’m really excited,” Journalism major and Mark Pierre said. “I know this is something that they (Eagle Radio) we’re trying to bring to campus for a really long time and even took a while to get going, so once it got going I got on board immediately.”

Pierre says he has made it a personal mission to help Eagle Radio gain more recognition Eagle Radio boasts about 30 staff members who work on sound, hosting and producing. “I’m excited that I was able to help start such a necessary organization on campus and I can’t wait to see how it flourishes in the future,” General manager of Eagle Radio Simone Nelzi said.
