Skip Finley, marketing and sales director for the Vineyard Gazette Media Group, set up a low power radio station at Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School. The station will be part of the school’s Career Technical Education (CTE) program and will generate funds for college scholarships. Students will survey community leaders to discover important issues and plan for content changes. “It teaches kids not just how to communicate but also how to do so succinctly, especially given modern technology like podcasts or web streaming that forces kids to think how to boil something down and get it across,” said Ty Hobbs, director of the CTE program.
