Now that the weather is warming up, it's safe to say there'll be events on the Wentworth Quad that YOU want WIRE to play music for! If so, head to our booking page and fill out a DJ Request and we'll be in touch!
Currently we require a 2 week notice for all events.
Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, JG & the Funky Bunch will not be able to play tomorrow night. We hope to bring JG back in for a future concert and wish them all the best.
In the mean time, we are proud to announce that 'The Interlopers' has been added to the lineup! These guys are a great Blues band hailing from the rolling green hills of Berkshire County Massachusetts.
Check out and download their great track "BETTER DAYS" off their bandcamp, below.
I am very happy to announce that the application period for those interested in an Executive Board (or Technology/Programming Team) position for next year has now begun!
As we transition into our new form as a school organization, every position on WIRE's new Executive Board is open for application, including:
- Station Director
- Assistant Station Director
- Technology Director
- Programming Director
- Events Manager
- Music + Library Manager
- News + Sports Manager
- Production Manager
- Promotions + Social Media Manager
- Web + Development Manager
- Programming Team Members
- Technology Team Members
Executive Board positions offer a way for WIRE constituents to directly contribute to the organization, as well as control and influence our direction! Plus, alongside your responsibilities, you will receive a variety of perks for being an Executive, as detailed in our Handbook.
But there's more! For those that simply want a way to contribute their technical skills and talents, there is the WIRE Technology Team, which acts as our task force and our spy-like agency, taking out glitches and problems with great precision. And for WIRE constituents that want to help shape and design the content and style of our shows (and our network as a whole), there is the Programming Team, which will have significant creative influence throughout our operations.
I can personally attest to the great times and awesome work that gets done as a member of WIRE's team. And, with the sorts of capital investments and new initiatives we have planned for next year, WIRE is poised to see incredible growth through large strides in our quality programming, as well as through the definition of our image through events and promotion.
If you are interested in any of these positions, just go to wire.wit.edu/apply and fill out the short form! The Executive Board will be conducting short interviews of all applicants during the weekend of April 6th.
I can't wait to see the sorts of talented applicants that WIRE will receive, and I eagerly look forward to enabling our members with the power to do some really good work for WIRE in the future.

Policies and Procedures Review:
- Primetime hours are from 8 AM to 5 PM.
- During Primetime, all music must be “appropriate”.
- DJs should NEVER swear on the air.
- If you are scheduled for a show slot, you must perform that slot!
- If you need to cancel a show, you must let the Executive Board know with at least 24 hours notice.
- DJs must sign in/out using the sheet on the wall, as well as turn on the "On Air" light during broadcast.
Training & showtime selections were reviewed and edited:
- Check OrgSync for an updated schedule.

- For further questions, email email@example.com.
Odds and ends:
- Microphone 2 is out of comission until further notice. Apologies!
- An AXIS IP camera has been set up in the studio, on top of the right speaker. It sends a live video feed to the website.
- We are beginning to ramp up the auditing process on DJs that do not follow procedures, to ensure that they are being followed.
- The show prompt will be updated ASAP. For now, keep saying it as-is.
Starting on Wednesday, January 16, WIRE will hold its General Body meeting bi-weekly in the Beatty Hall Lecture Room (Room 426) at 6 PM, with meetings generally lasting between thirty and sixty minutes.
WIRE will also hold its Executive Board meetings (which are open to all WIRE members) weekly at 5:30 PM in the Beatty Hall Lecture Room, with meetings running the full thirty minutes before a General Body meeting, and running for as long as is needed when no General Body meeting is after.
Additionally, free food in the form of baked goods will be provided at the first meeting of the semester, so be sure to show up!
As the spring semester begins, and students and faculty at WIT begin to get back into the swing of things, WIRE has returned to the airwaves. We are very excited to see what the next few months will bring, and we have a plethora of shows, programs and events planned throughout.
If you are a listener to WIRE: Not only do we expect to have our largest catalogue of shows ever, we also now have an easier and better listening experience, in large part due to various studio upgrades and updates to our website and software.
If you want WIRE to DJ at your event: We now have a more robust technology setup and an ever-expanding pool of talented DJs to draw from.
And if you were ever thinking of joining WIRE to have your own show, or DJ a few events: There has never been a better time! WIRE is always looking to recruit new DJs and increase our ranks, and we are currently experiencing astounding growth and development, making this year one of the most exciting for our organization.
Or perhaps you would like to DJ a few events on behalf of WIRE?
Maybe you are just interested in what we do, or want to help out in some way?
Well, fortunately, WIRE is always looking for more members to join our organization! Whether you want to run a show, perform at an event or keep the studio running, we would love for you to join us!
Simply come to one of our bi-weekly General Body meetings starting January 16 and located at Beatty 426. Our meetings are simple, causal, fun and informative. Heck, we even have free food at some of them, and who doesn't like that?
