The Story Of Flagler College’s First 50 Years Told Through The People, Places And Things That Shaped It

Each of the 50 people, places and things that we selected represent a major milestone in the development of Flagler College. Our selections include the expected and the unexpected, ordinary, everyday objects and the extraordinary people that helped us turn nouns into verbs and change lives. Together, they tell our story. But it is not the complete story. Like all milestones, they indicate how far we have come. They do not measure the thousands of stepping stones, those everyday moments, the hard work and dedication, that got us to those key celebrated moments in our rich history.

Radio with a Reason

The reason is education, information and entertainment. Launched in 1993, Flagler College Radio, WFCF 88.5FM, is just one of the many examples of living classrooms where students get on-the-job experience using state-of-the-art digital recording equipment. Construction of a 190-foot radio tower in 2003 upped the stations radio signal to 10,000 watts. In 2012, WFCF added another milestone when it began streaming its programing online by iHeartRadio, a free industry-leading digital radio service. More than 800 students and volunteers have participated in station operations which reach nearly 50,000 listeners weekly.
