This service-learning course involves students in community outreach to identify significant community problems, issues and needs and how these areas are addressed by public service programming. Students create a radio public affairs issue fact sheet on the non-profit group and produce issue related public service announcements for broadcast on WCRX, the Columbia College radio station, and local commercial stations. This class also covers critical Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules and regulations as they relate to the radio station public file.
