EXPLORING RADIO’S INNOVATIVE PAST TO INSPIRE AND INFORM THE FUTURE
The Northwest Hall of Radio History is dedicated to the media pioneers who built the region's broadcasting institutions. Through their stories, the hall interprets the past to inspire others to shape the media of tomorrow.
The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication has received a gift to develop a “Northwest Hall of Radio History." This project offers a way for students, faculty, and the public to experience and learn about the early days of radio in Washington state.
In addition to a virtual museum on this website, The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication will develop a display hall at Murrow West Room 300 on the Pullman campus.
The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication will coordinate the acquisition of radio history artifacts from the state, interview and collaborate with living radio pioneers, and preserve radio recordings and other archives relevant to this rich history.
If you have information or artifacts to contribute to this project, please contact Kerry Swanson, with Northwest Public Radio at (509) 335-6512 firstname.lastname@example.org or Feliks Banel, Hall of Radio curator, (206) 369-6630, email@example.comIn the photo at upper right: J.
