WZND announced nine Illinois State University alumni will be inducted into the prestigious Illinois State University Broadcast Hall of Fame on April 9.
The Broadcast Education Association (BEA) is an academic media organization, promoting insights, excellence in media production, and career advancement for educators, students, and professionals. Illinois State University’s School of Communication is proud to have three students who won scholarships in this nationwide competition.
Dr. Kenneth Harris Jr. ’84 is an alumnus who has excelled in broadcasting since graduating from Illinois State University and the School of Communication with his Bachelor of Science degree in mass communication.
With immense pride, our very own WZND Fuzed Radio Station took home the gold, and secured the title, “Radio National Signature Station,” for the remainder of 2021. This is not the first time WZND has won this very award. Previously, in 2018, they earned the very same title.
The best way to train future broadcast media professionals is to immerse them in the real world of running a 24-hour radio station. Illinois State’s student-run radio station, WZND, is figuring out how to do that with proper safety precautions in place.

All staff members of WGLT invested in the Redbirds Rising campaign, showing their unwavering support for the University and commitment to the students. The radio station is hoping their efforts will inspire other campus units to reach 100 percent participation, as well as inspire all faculty, staff, and retirees to make a gift.
Illinois State alumna Katie Neal ’12 never wanted to work in radio because she hated the sound of her own voice.
