Station Begins Broadcasting Sept. 1
WWFM The Classical Network will launch its new jazz station Sept. 1. Called
"Jazz On 2," it will air on 89.1's HD2 channel. The new station
will collaborate with WDUQ in Pittsburgh for its programming, made possible
by the college's recently added membership affiliation with National Public
Radio. Locally produced programs will include guest hosts from college
faculty and staff, and members of the community. The jazz music will also
be simulcast on the college's cable TV station during bulletin board announcements.
The jazz station's goals include helping to market Mercer's programs,
especially at the Kerney campus, to help revive Trenton's jazz heritage,
and to encourage students to continue both their higher education and
their jazz involvement after high school.
WWFM Producer Winifred Howard is coordinating the jazz initiative, and
she has already arranged for more than a dozen local programs a week,
with hosts from MCCC faculty, staff, and the community.

by Former Student Wins Awards
"The City is Mine," a film by former MCCC student Patric Pierre,
was nominated for awards in three categories by the 2008 American Black
Film Festival: Best Actor Kirk Ponton, Heineken Award for Innovation in
Film, and Target Award for Most Inspirational Film. The festival takes
place August 7-10 in Los Angeles, California.
The Downtown Trenton
Association said, "The film is an in-depth feature-length saga that
reveals the underbelly of greed and seduction with its violent aftermath
in the urban environment. It gives a bird's eye account of how culpable
the characters are as defined by flawed and criminal actions."
