Saying good bye to a dear friend
Posted on May 4, 2012
This article i am sharing with you is about a school program where i received my training for Radio & TV Broadcasting. Scarlet Oaks Vocational School is where i took this course the last two years of High School. Scarlet Oaks Voc. School is located in Sharonville, Ohio and caters to many vocation’s such as culinary arts, law enforcement, computer aided drafting just to name a few. Scarlet Oaks is a branch of a number of vocational schools operating under the name Great Oaks Vocational Schools. The various branches teach many vocations and offers students a hands on approach to real life training.
Scarlet Oaks owns a radio station operating on 88.3 fm with 175 watts and shares it’s frequency with WAIF-FM Cincinnati Ohio.
The school board announced they will be pulling the plug on the Radio and Television program which has been operating since 1979. Apparently other high school “student operated” stations have already closed down and WJVS-FM will be no different. I learned valuable lessons those two years at WJVS-FM and made some great friends along the way.
I will truly miss the program and the great WJVS-FM.
