Students in the Curatorial Practices in Museums and Cultural Organizations class at Michigan State University are curating and staging an exhibition honoring WKAR’s Century of Service.

WKAR officially went on the air on Aug. 18, 1922, as an AM radio station, broadcasting agricultural news and information. It has grown into a robust media organization that includes WKAR-TV, WKAR Radio,, Radio Reading Service, WKAR Digital Studios and WKAR Family. For 100 years, students have played a key part in WKAR’s programming and technological innovation, so it’s only natural that MSU students would take the lead in bringing this exhibition to life.
