From October 27-30th, the WLOY staff attended the highly anticipated National Student Electronic Media Conference (NSEMC) that took place in Baltimore this year! More than 300 students involved in college radio and TV stations all over the country came together to connect with each other and learn more about the TV and radio industry.

Thursday’s sessions and panels took place with topics ranging from navigating through the post-pandemic world, women’s sports, and how to better engage with your audience. Staff and station advisers also met in roundtable discussions to talk about different ways to improve their respective stations and get feedback from other admins. At the end of the day, all attendees gathered in the Diamond Tavern at the Baltimore Hilton Hotel for the swag swap, where stations traded stickers, t-shirts, tote bags, and every kind of merch you can think of with each other. The staff came back to the station with a whole box of merchandise from stations all over the country! (more…)

Rocky Horror Picture Show 2022

Wednesday, November 9th, 2022 by Liz Kosik

by Aliyah Smith-Bradley

On October 31st, 2022, WLOY and Spectrum presented the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and it was amazing! For those of you who don’t know, WLOY’s screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 10+ year tradition (and eventually we will succeed in having it outside on the quad). WLOY shows it every Halloween and this year was in collaboration with Spectrum. Spectrum is a LBGTQ+ support service at Loyola University Maryland. This year we held a costume contest with the winner taking home a new turntable and a picture disc of 45th Anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack!

Rocky Horror was a huge hit this year! With Halloween falling on a rainy Monday, celebrating it with a movie was perfect. The event had about 60 students and 19 contest competitors. For the contest, we had so many students with amazing costumes to judge it was tough. In the end, Elvis Presley (a Loyola student) won with an astounding round of applause. Everyone had a great time watching with some students shouting along with the Rocky Horror Audience Participation Script. This event was personally one of my favorites with the candy, welcoming community, and seeing everyone in their costumes.

WLOY is honored and thrilled to welcome the 2022 National Student Electronic Media Convention to Baltimore! After years of the conference roving around the country and just missing us, we finally captured it for 2020 and then… ugh. Thankfully we are hosting it live and in person for 2022!

We’re doing our best to be great ambassadors for Baltimore with a 20 minute welcome to Charm City video created by Ben Ostrowski ’24 and voice by him and Hope Johnson ’23. We’ve roped in great local music from Skribe and James Von Lenz and arranged tours of M & T Bank Stadium and WBAL Radio/TV and more fun things. How about bringing a special edition of the Baltimore Record Bazaar into the hotel to let students from all over the country do a little crate digging! We’ll be sharing as much Baltimore as we can with our guests and linking videos and other info. As a bonus, we have 9 amazing WLOY alumni coming back to share their experiences in radio, TV, film, PR, digital content and entertainment law 🙂

Vakili Band Interview

Wednesday, October 12th, 2022 by The Professor

Wooo! We are BACK! In studio with the Vakili Band during a stop on their way to their show in DC at The Runaway tonight. Ben Ostrowski ’24 hung out with the full band for our first in studio band visit since the dreaded closure of 2020… So glad to start having bands back in and they were a great one. The whole band hung and talked process, their new Walking Sideways album, recording vs live versions, and how well Gordon packs the van. A lot of fun and a great way to get back into live interviews. Can’t wait for them to come back in the spring for a show in Baltimore. Meanwhile check out their new album and listen to the interview in case you missed it live.
