Event Description

Jules Conlon is the 2018-2019 General Manager of 88.1 FM, WKNC, NC State’s student-run radio station. WKNC creates a community of broadcast enthusiasts from the ever-changing population of NC State, and, year after year, delivers quality programming, cutting edge music, and community engagement. Join us for a conversation with Jules about WKNC, broadcasting, and being an integral and influential part of the world of music without playing instruments or writing songs.

Jules Conlon is a senior at NC State studying biology and the general manager of the university's student-run radio station, WKNC 88.1 FM Raleigh. She got her start in the music industry in 2014, when she created the music blog Noise Polluter, which featured album reviews and interviews and eventually contributions from other writers nationwide. She got involved at WKNC during her first semester of college and has continued involvement there for the past four years, working her way up from an assistant music director. Jules has also held an internship with Merge Records and been involved with Hopscotch Music Festival and Moogfest.
