After more than six months of being locked out of their radio station, WZRD, students at Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) have finally been allowed back into their station, and returned to the air today. The WZRD students posted on facebook, “we are back in the driver seat once again.”
The administration had demanded changes to the WZRD constitution, including adding “musical preference” to the prohibited nondiscrimination categories, and “a statement of civility and decorum.” However, the students refused to agree, and reportedly were allowed back into the station without submitting to any of the administration’s demands.
