This panel will examine the recent sales by colleges and universities of student broadcast outlets. Given the austere financial outlook for academic budgets across the nation are we seeing a tipping point that could escalate as cash deprived administrations see their NCE radio license as a liquid asset rather than a vibrant student retention and co-curricular asset to campus life? The panel will address concerns for the future of college radio and ways to potentially forestall administrators from perceiving their license as a way to fund other initiatives for their campus.
