From The Register-Mail:
Knox College was included in the 2010 edition of the Princeton Reviewâ€™s â€œBest 368 Collegesâ€ under the Best College Radio Stations category. The book selects just 15 percent of colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, giving WVKC 90.7â€™s ranking an air of prestige â€” a motivation behind Lovett and Pleinesâ€™ work.
â€œOne of the goals we set for ourselves is to live up to that ranking,â€ said Lovett. â€œAlso, in my mind, having some semblance of responsibility.â€
As Lovett and Pleines seek to give WVKC more of a business feel, they have also created a new logo, but Lovett laments the possibility that all of the efforts could someday be changed by someone else.
â€œThe best plan you can build, you can only watch for, at most, three years, before it dies,â€ said Lovett. â€œAny change we make might only last about 18 months, before somebody thinks itâ€™s stupid and changes it.â€
Pleines said she wants to make sure that as much as possible is accomplished at the station during her time at Knox.
â€œFor me, itâ€™s just hoping the DJs and other people see that weâ€™re trying to make it better, and if they like what they see, maybe theyâ€™ll leave it and have more respect for it,â€ said Pleines. â€œWe hope it lasts, but thereâ€™s really nothing to guarantee it.â€
