The Break Room


Whether working in an office cubicle, on a factory floor or along the aisles of a retail store, time spent in the break room is usually a quiet time, away from pressure, away from work routines and often a place where co-workers can converse in a relaxed environment.  That’s the idea behind the WFCF/Flagler College Radio program, The Break Room (TBR).

Hosted by Paul K. Williamson, Public Affairs Director, the 15-minute weekly program offers a behind-the scenes look at the workings of city government through interviews with people key in the city’s day-to-day operations. TBR airs on Wednesdays at 5:00pm and is re-broadcast on Saturdays at 8:00am.
