Jennings Sunday: Student radio tunes in dreams

Follow The Republic:

WHITELAND — In one show, you might learn how the middle school girls’ basketball team is doing.

Another show might cover records that a high school track player has broken or how the football team is preparing for the upcoming season.

Five students at Whiteland Community High School have started a biweekly radio show. Their first broadcast was in January.

The athletics-based show is the project of a history teacher who wants to see the show grow into a full-scale radio broadcast program staffed by students.

“It lets them take ownership of something,” history teacher Chris Wood said. “These are real-world skills they will have to have in any occupation.”

Every two weeks, three students host and two students produce the show from Kacey’s Restaurant in Whiteland. The eatery is a community landmark and one of the show’s sponsors. Students are responsible for every aspect of the show.
