Studio A

Friday, October 14, 2016 - 7:00pm to Saturday, October 15, 2016 - 7:00pm

WKCR regrets its actions with regard to a guest who had recently been scheduled to appear on our program Studio A. Specifically, WKCR's editorial policies and University policies regarding speech were misrepresented in our communications to this guest. To be clear, WKCR and Columbia University strongly believe in robust freedom of expression, especially about challenging ideas. Likewise, WKCR’s content is curated by student and alumni programmers and reflects their own individual self-expression. As undergraduate students serving in a volunteer capacity, we are grateful for the opportunities to grow through our management of WKCR. This is a continuous educational process; to that end we are engaged in ongoing meetings with Student Life staff to ensure students understand the core freedom of speech values essential to a university community.While we regret how this issue had been handled by individual students, WKCR recognizes this occurrence as an opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to free expression of our guests and programmers.
