Hendrix Radio Station KHDX Part of New Arkansas College Radio Association

CONWAY, Ark. (March 14, 2017) – Hendrix College radio station KHDX-FM 93.1 is a charter member of the newly formed Arkansas College Radio Association (ArkCRA), a support and resource network of collegiate radio stations in Arkansas.

“The future of college radio in Arkansas looks bright,” said KHDX Technical Director Jacob Turner ’19, ArkCRA President. “We are very excited to have started a state-level organization that is the first of its kind in the nation for bringing college radio stations together to support and assist each other in our development and operations, as well as working to assist other colleges in starting their own stations.”

“One of our hopes is that the ArkCRA will help provide stability and support to student-run radio operations, which can struggle sometimes because of staff turnover,” said Hendrix biology professor and KHDX advisor Dr. Maureen McClung. “Charter stations include well-established organizations and those that are just starting out, so the ArkCRA presents many opportunities for collaboration.”

“The energy behind this organization is incredible, and true to college radio, it is completely student-driven,” McClung added.

KHDX members joined their peers from KUOZ from the University of the Ozarks, KXUA from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville, and NUMediA from the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith for an inaugural meeting last month at Hendrix.

Other charter ArkCRA members include KVHU from Harding University, KWEM from Arkansas State University Mid-South, and Red Wolf Radio from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro.
