Senior Communication Arts students from the Institute of Communication (IComm) of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences mounted four weekly radio shows during the 3rd season of the DZRV Radio Veritas 846 Campus Hour in August.
According to IComm radio production faculty Jemuel Go, the format for this season's Campus Hour has shifted to a radio talk show that features students talking about various issues and current events.
Among the topics that were discussed were the recent spate of fraternity-related violent incidents, coping with student life, and other youth-oriented subjects.
The Knights Campus Hour was helmed by executive producer Heiren Grace Amurao and directed by Julius Lacaba. The other crewmembers are: shift coordinator Jose Refugia; writers Reeza Belo, Princess Perez, and Andrea Carillo; soundmen John Michael Kenneth de Guzman and Rochelle Daguman; and talent Felipe John Dannug.
"It's a great accomplishment and it's more training for the students in radio production," Go said.
An episode of the Knights Campus Hour was chosen as a finalist for the Freedom Project 2012 of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation. The competition "aims to recognize outstanding initiatives that promote, safeguard and maximize the benefits of freedom." As of press time, the Campus Hour stands in joint first place in the online voting. There are 21 finalists for this year's Freedom Project competition.
Amurao won last season's Best Female Anchor award beating representatives from six other schools.
