Five years after being shuttered due to lack of personnel, Manhattan College’s student-run radio station WRCM is back on the air thanks to the determination of a team of students.

Sophomore Samantha Walla, leader of the WRCM team, says, “When I went to college, a lot of my friends were doing radio shows and I wanted that sense of community. Radio on a college campus is such an integral part of the student community and to not have that – we felt like there was something missing.”

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Mary’s Dad


Good Afternoon All,

Ann Burke shares a request from Manhattan College Accounting Professor Mary Michel for her Dad. He has been in our prayers and we need to raise the volume for this good Man. He is fighting 4th Stage Panreatic Cancer and holding his head up high in his struggle, he decided to mow his own lawn. He has been admitted to Hospital with an infection. We pray that the MDs bring this infection under control and eliminate it quickly. We pray for him, for Mary and their Family. Please raise the volume for this good man so that he may soon return to his home and loved ones. Thank you. God Bless.

Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
