State of the Station: June 2014
A few weeks ago, I released a statement addressing the issue of WIUX’s impending move. We are pleased to announce that this issue has been resolved for the time being. We will be moving into 715-717 E. 8th St. this coming July. The house is a duplex and is owned by IU Real Estate. IU Real Estate will be renovating the house to our specifications so that we can operate out of it. We will also be getting some new furniture that will be purchased by IU Space Planning. Don’t worry; our Coke machine will be coming with us, as well as some of our other beloved furniture from 815 E. 8th St.
We are extremely excited about our new house. It is a chance for us to make a new space our own. Personally, I’m very excited to have this opportunity to create a space that is conducive to our needs and will be a haven for all of us during the school year. We will also be adding an office for Sports and Business to share, which is something that has not happened since our days in 617 E 8th St. The house will also have one working kitchen where we will be able to make coffee, and have other amenities that will continue to make our station a home. Our first official broadcast out of the new space will be during alumni weekend, which is July 25-27. I couldn’t think of a better way to christen our new home then by having the people who helped create our station’s culture broadcast out of it for the first time. It will truly be a weekend to remember and to listen to.
