What is happening is radio at Victoria?

VBC (Victoria Broadcasting Club) is Victoria’s student radio station, established in 2007, and available on 88.3FM or online.

‘Til this year, it has been funded to the tune of $30,000 annually, with money from the Student Services Levy – the fee paid by all students.

It is ‘owned’ by the VBC Trust, an inactive group who deregistered in 2013 and agreed to hand over the station to VUWSA.

The status of the VBC going forward is unclear: it owes more to the IRD in liabilities than it has in assets.

Duncan and Cam, the current Salient editors, would like to see the VBC brought into the Salient fold. A shift in focus towards online podcasting seems to be the most viable option for the future of the radio.

Another option is to partner with Radio New Zealand to run the station, which would fit in with the company’s objective of becoming more relevant to students.

About the Author ()

Salient is a magazine. Salient is a website. Salient is an institution founded in 1938 to cater to the whim and fancy of students of Victoria University. We are partly funded by VUWSA and partly by gold bullion that was discovered under a pile of old Salients from the 40's. Salient welcomes your participation in debate on all the issues that we present to you, and if you're a student of Victoria University then you're more than welcome to drop in and have tea and scones with the contributors of this little rag in our little hideaway that overlooks Wellington.
