Carnegie-Mellon housed non-commercial WRCT-FM (88.3) has been competing against other non-comms in a “March Madness” type of competition held by Soundtap.com. Listeners have been invited to listen to WRCT through Soundtap’s feed rather than the station’s own feed in order to be counted as listening during the contest. Furthermore, listeners will have to click a button every 60 minutes to ensure that they are listening or their hour worth of listening won’t be counted.
WRCT is now in the final round going head to head against University of Vermont station WRUV. Between now and 3:00 a.m. Thursday, the two stations will be in stiff competition as they seek the top spot in the contest. The station’s website says, “Let’s show those green mountain boys and girls what these kids from the three rivers are capable of.”
