Coog Radio Through the Years
Co-founders Conner Clifton, Markley Rogers, and Matt Womack envisioned the concept in 2010, but it wasn’t executed until Fall 2011. Coog Radio launched on August 29, 2011. Lee Waddell interviews Founder/Director Conner Clifton, Music Director Josue Garcia, PR & Marketing Director Gloria Cheng, and other Coog Radio DJs almost a year later on August 23, 2012 about the station’s inception and its workings.
“It’s because the students wanted it. Students wanted a student run station, so three people got together and petitioned for it,” said Justin Lyles, station manager for Coog Radio. “We started in the basement of the Engineering building. We’ve been in the (former) University Center Underground, crammed in a closet, and now we have our fancy studios.”
“The fun and appeal of student-run radio is that it’s the student voice. Coog Radio is for the student,” said programming director Trent Lira. “We have people from all kinds of majors that are involved in Coog Radio. I’m a theater major, but I’m interested in college radio.”
