Rider Radio, TV on “Internationalization Plan”

Radio programs in German and Chinese.  A television program “highlighting news, politics, concerts, art and movies” in Spanish.  International is the buzzword in the air (and possibly soon on air) at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.


Rider professor Hernan Fontanet is building on the success of a Spanish-language program broadcast on university radio last spring with a larger push for students to simultaneously gain broadcast j-experience and strengthen their foreign tongue and ties.  According to Fontanet: 


“The internationalization plan is becoming real with three radio shows in three different languages and a television show entirely in Spanish.  It promotes an international-friendly environment and introduces new languages in various aspects of everyday life. People will be exposed to new dialects and listen to music from Germany and from China.”
