It’s always cool to see MxCC alumni in the news. Army veteran Bruce Haag ’05 was featured in The Record Journal about his fellowship at Wallingford Public Access.

The Hartford Courant wrote a really nice story on the progress we are making for the new radio station at MxCC.

Middlesex Community College Gets FCC Permit For Radio Station []
Middlesex Community College recently received a permit from the Federal Communications Commission to build a radio station as part of its curriculum.
Professor Rich Lenoce, the director of the Center for New Media at the college, said the FCC granted a construction permit that gives the college 18 months to build a radio tower and transmitter, then start broadcasting.

A few weeks ago, we wrote about how a radio station is in the works at MxCC. Well, yesterday afternoon we found out that our application permit for a radio station was changed from “accepted” to GRANTED. So that means we have about 18 months to start broadcasting on the air! Now that we have the permit, our next step is to do a site survey at the transmitter/antenna site in Portland. We’ll need to figure out what’s needed and the costs before we can do anything else.

We will keep you updated throughout the next few months as we go through this process, so check back soon!


MxCC’s Center for New Media was featured in an article in The Middletown Press. The piece highlighted the different changes coming to the College, including the renovation of Chapman Hall for the Center for New Media.

“One of the big construction projects is the creation of the Center for New Media in Chapman Hall. All the media programs will be moved here along with the creation of new programs in the fall including TV and film production, news and sports production and corporate media. In the spring, Middlesex will introduce interactive entertainment and gaming and animation.”
