CMU broadcasting student wins prestigious national scholarship

For the third consecutive year, a Central Michigan University School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts student has been selected to receive a competitive national scholarship from The John Bayliss Broadcast Foundation.

Senior Kristine Moore of Owosso is among 14 undergraduate and graduate students nationwide to receive a $5,000 Bayliss Radio Scholarship. Moore managed WMHW-FM 91.5, CMU's student-run radio station, during the 2006-2007 academic year and then completed an eight-week Bayliss Radio Intern Program internship during summer 2007 at Detroit-based Greater Media.

"We are very pleased that The Bayliss Foundation has recognized Kristine's commitment to radio with this scholarship," said Peter Orlik, director of CMU's School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts. "She has already accomplished a great deal as a student manager and will play an important part in the changing role of radio."

"The Bayliss Scholarship opened the door for me to experience working in large-market radio, along with supporting my college education," said Moore. "None of this would be possible without the education and training I'm receiving from CMU's School of Broadcast and Cinematic Arts and campus radio station, WMHW."
