I look forward to this station remaining on the air as a campus station. I feel like KICK-FM could have been far more successful over the years if it hadn't been restricted from growing by the College's refusal to fully incorporate it into its own radio program. The mere fact that the organization involved is called "CreComm Radio Inc" tells me that more Creative Communications students will be given the opportunity to help develop and deliver quality programming and events to the people of Winnipeg. In the past, the College has preferred to have its radio component taught in classrooms by people who are unable to even speak to the technical concerns of the students. They call them "industry professionals" because they still have jobs elsewhere. It was a complete waste of my own time/money, and I have been forced to watch one of the best radio stations in the city flounder and diminish, while my own College applied the strangle hold. I am one of many who believe that high ranking college officials have been attempting to sabotage the existence of KICK-FM, simply to satisfy their political ties and to appease concerns from the local commercial radio industry. Please bring this station back - make it good again - force the College to let it be run by Rick Baverstock, so it may be developed in a way that cooperates with the radio program as he sees fit and NOT in a way that panders to the limited skill levels of the program's instructors. Thank you.
