OSHKOSH, WIS. -- Every year for one week near the end of summer time, thousands of aviation enthusiasts travel from over 60 countries to Oshkosh Wisconsin for the world’s greatest aviation celebration, EAA Airventure.

A few of the many attendees at this event includes a group of St. Cloud State University students to help with the set up and production of EAA Radio. The students are taking part in this project through a summer course offered each year by St. Cloud State’s mass communications department.

EAA radio offers students a great opportunity to get hands on experience. Students help to set up the station before Airventure begins, and it operates throughout the week to provide information about daily events, weather, and interviews with a wide variety of guests.

These students assist with many aspects of the station- audio editing, reporting, board operation, meteorology, recording audio, and voice-over work are a few of the many jobs that are given to students for this course.
