Grossmont students radio promo comes in 2nd nationally

GROSSMONT COLLEGE –Radio student Eric LaForest has won second place in the student audio competition of the Broadcast Education Association for his spot “Zombie Attack” promoting National College Radio Day on Griffin Radio.

The only community college student to enter the national competition, LaForest’s entry was one of 78 submitted nationwide.   He will receive his award April 15 at the annual BEA National Convention.

“We are very excited that Grossmont College Students are recognized for their achievements at a National level,” said Media Communications Prof. Evan C. Wirig.

” I am almost as jazzed as Evan, because Eric was in my class too, which is a writing class,” said Michael Grant, the Media Communications department chairman. “All media begins with an idea, a piece of paper, and a student’s knowledge about what to do with those starting places, which will eventually involve print, video, audio, radio, and film, or some combination of these. Each time one of our students scores in this way, it gives all Media Com faculty and staff pleasure in sharing in the achievement.”
