CityStAug Radio

iconmicrophone  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 being WFCF/Flagler College Radio's program called appropriately, The Break Room (TBR). Hosted by Paul K. Williamson, the city’s 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 Wednesday at 5:00pm and is repeated on Saturday at 8:00am.

“Dan McCook, WFCF station manager suggested a weekly program with information about the city,” said Williamson. “We settled on a format of having a conversation with the professionals who work for the city. There are always the big issues that gain a lot of attention, but we wanted to focus on the day-in and day-out working of local government. I would like for listeners, at least at some time during the program, to say to themselves ‘I didn’t know that.’ ”

“The city has a number of ways we share information with the community, including the weekly info-email, News & Notes, quarterly newsletters inserted in utility bills, and of course the city’s web site,” said Williamson adding, “and now we have radio. I appreciate the college making this opportunity available, and as an alumni, am especially proud to be working with the college.”

The Break Room is broadcast Wednesdays @ 5:00pm & Saturdays @ 8:00am on WFCF 88.5 FM

WFCF, “Radio with a Reason,” is a 24/7 non-commercial, educational radio station staffed by students in the Flagler College Communication Department and community volunteers. WFCF started broadcasting in the fall of 1993 with the mission to “to provide a source of quality radio programming for the greater St. Johns County area and to provide a superior learning environment for students majoring in broadcasting at Flagler College.”
