MARTIN, Tenn., Oct. 13, 2017 – WUTM PARTICIPATES IN COLLEGE RADIO DAY – The University of Tennessee at Martin’s WUTM 90.3 “The Hawk” participated in the 2017 College Radio Day, Oct. 6, by holding a live broadcast in front of the Barnes & Noble Bookstore in the Boling University Center. College Radio Day’s goal is to raise the profile of college radio stations across the country and encourage increased student participation in the medium of college radio. Pictured from the station are (l to r) Olivia Johnston, of Madison, Alabama, station news director; John Thornton, of Atoka, WUTM sports director; and Emma Bruner, of South Fulton, station business and traffic director, all communications students. “Since 2005, WUTM has won over 200 awards from state, regional, national and international competitions,” wrote Dr. Richard Robinson, station faculty adviser, in a university email promoting the event. “The station currently holds the title of ‘Best College Radio Station in the South,’ as designated by the Southeast Journalism Conference, and is a seven-time Platinum-rated station, as designated by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System. ‘The Hawk’ was named the ‘Best College Radio Station in the Nation’ (for colleges with under 10,000 enrollment) in both 2012 and 2016.”
