Thank you, thank you to the Bryan-College Station Eagle and WTAW 1620 AM radio for making the FJSA Fall Reception possible. Their generous donations will allow us to gather together for our annual business meeting, to hear speakers updating us on journalism education at A&M and to honor our 2008 Hall of Honor inductee, CNN's Roland Martin '91.
FJSA Fall Reception: 11 a.m. Oct. 11, MSC Stark Galleries
Bryan Broadcasting (WTAW/KZNE) is the official flagship station for Aggie athletics on the radio. A&M Athletics says WTAW was at one time owned by the university and the call letters originally stood for "Watch The Aggies Win." Whoop! I'm assuming it was at one time also a TV station or else we've got the makings of a fantastic Aggie joke here. Anywhere in the world, 'cept maybe China, Ags can listen to the station (and thus Aggie sports) online.
The Eagle has launched the careers of many Aggie journalists and regularly rakes in the awards, including recent recognition by Texas APME for its Web site, community service, specialty reporting, sports photography, infographics, headlines and more. Of particular interest to Aggie readers inside or outside the B/CS Megaplex might be the Eagle's excellent Dining Guide, its many RSS feeds through which you can subscribe to A&M news, and its Aggie sports Web site, Aggiesports.com.
Did I mention we are grateful for their support? We surely are. Go click on their content for us.
