New Jersey Youth Shadow WDHA-FM and WMTR-AM Staff
January 17, 2015
Last spring, WDHA-FM and WMTR-AM began a shadowing program with the youth group from Daytop New Jersey, a substance abuse treatment center in northern New Jersey. The students spent the day touring the WDHA-FM and WMTR-AM facilities in Cedar Knolls, NJ, learning about the air studio, production, sales, programming and promotions.
After their tour, the students were treated to a working lunch, where managers from every department explained what they did and how their job affects the overall success of the radio station.
This visit is beginning an outreach program between Daytop and WDHA-FM/WMTR-AM. The students will return in the fall to continue to shadow the different departments as well as have an opportunity to create programs of their own to better learn how the radio station works.
