Have you heard the exciting news?
WMPH has teamed up with Delaware First Media (Delaware's source for NPR) to form a new public radio network! This brand new partnership is called Delaware Public Media. Read more about it right here.
Does this mean more opportunities for students?
More and better, yes! With this partnership, we will be able to help students record, edit and post stories to the radio and the web. Meanwhile, here at WMPH studios, writer/journalist/editors from DPM will be working on Delaware stories for use on the network, with plenty of chances for job-shadowing and interning. This partnership is here to open new doors to more creativity across multiple digital platforms - that's a WIN for our students!
Let us know if you liked something you heard on WMPH, won't you?

The upper left hand quadrant is the main air studio, the rest are (clockwise) the Newsroom, Prod 2 and Prod 1, were students are either voicetracking or doing extra work after school polishing up their Radio Class assignments. - Mr. Wish
