WQCS FM

Experts say that it takes human beings just seven seconds to make a first impression. “It’s true,” said Wendy Dwyer, instructor at Indian River State College. “Within seven seconds of meeting someone, you typically decide whether or not to like them, trust them, develop a relationship with them, or work with them. When you’re looking for a job or career, don’t you want to make those first seven seconds – and all the ones thereafter – count?”

Music students in the four-county area, as well as northern Palm Beach and south Brevard counties are invited to audition for public radio station WQCS / 88.9 FM's popular Young Musicians Spotlight, a one-hour radio special featuring the talent of young musicians.

The auditions are the first step to a performance on the station's locally-produced music special.

This summer, we asked Floridians about the biggest issues on their minds this election season. Over the next few weeks, public radio stations across the state will be looking at the top five answers to that question, in stories about the environment, education, the economy and more. Decision FL was brtoadcast live at 1pm on WQCS HD2, with a rebroadcast on WQCS and HD1 at 6pm. This election program is a state collaborative and originated out of the WLRN studios in Miami.

Collaborative work with college librarians delivers researched stories. Kerry Dulcio produced pieces on the Syrian Refugee Crises and Masculinity in contemporary society.

The show also features a Culture Jam on super heroes, a faculty led segment that uses a fun conversational style to foster critical thinking about popular culture. Student voices from around campus weigh in with thoughts on what makes a real hero.

Highlights on IRSC Drama students are also featured with a story on the murder mystery dinner theater.
