WRKE - The Wreck
WRKE-FM 100.3, also known as "The Wreck", is the official radio station run by Roanoke College students out of their own office in the Colket center.
Started by Jim Goodwin in 1998, the station appeals to a variety of listeners around the campus. Approximately 20 new shows are on the air each week. Students can select songs that they want to hear played, allowing them to share with the radio community the type of music they are interested in.
All this work requires a staff of around 40 people to keep the station running 24 hours a day.
