The Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) here is all set to have an exclusive community radio station on its campus.

The initiative taken up by GNDU V-C Dr Jaspal Singh will go a long way to connect the masses with the varsity in terms of its day-to-day activities besides giving an exposure to students in honing their skills in the field of media and communication.

To beam variety of programmes

Besides the news feed from AIR (Akashvani), the channel will telecast the local news, GNDU programmes, career guidance and public affairs. There will be insightful interviews with achievers, especially in academics, sports and art fields.
