Why are we doing a blog when we have a website, and Edge Newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, iPhone and Droid apps, etc??? Do we really need one more thing?? Why? We want to give you an inside view of what goes on at what we lovingly call the "zoo" - answer any questions you might have - have fun - share stories - and have more fun.
Have you ever wondered what it is like inside the broadcast studio at WKDZ? What are the air personalities doing while they are on the air? It takes a lot of work behind the scenes, but Alan, Cindy, Carrie, Michael, Bill, the weekend staff and our news teams are also doing a lot more than just "talking" during their shifts. This is their view when they are on the air -
What is all this?? From left to right - CD Players and Audio Stream Switchers - Weather Edge Digital Radar and Telephone - Computer to check weather, our website, email, Facebook, etc. - Control Board which controls what goes over the air and monitors sound quality - Microphone - On Air Computer that plays ALL of the music and commercials you hear on the radio.

They are also watching 3 live TV monitors broadcasting various news channels while people are in and out of the studio handing them slips of paper with last minute birthdays, song requests, breaking news, etc. All of this goes on every day while they are trying to give you, our listeners, the latest news, weather, and sports information we have available. So.....if they sound just a little crazy some days......now you know why!
