New Team at Queen's Radio

Last week Queen's Radio held elections for a new committee at their Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM). Sources within the Students' Union suggest there had been some friction within the student station recently and members were determined to keep the station in the hands of students.

The radio station was started with the help of money from the Queen's Alumni Fund. It has been broadcasting (via computer network) inside the University for several years and is expected to start broadcasting on AM during this academic term.

The new committee:

Station Manager: Darren Craig
Assistant Station Manager: Sarah McCaffery
Chairperson: Aoife Crilly
Secretary: Emma-Rose McGrady
Treasurer: Joseph Todd

Don't you mean AGM, EGM's tend only to occur in a crisis or when some faction is trying to seize control.

On the subject, who takes the reins at the Gown next year.

No, it was an EGM. We can't seem to find out who asked for it. It certainly seems unusual.

As for the reins of The Gown, that will remain a mystery for some time to come!

1134 MW since Feb. You should correct your post.

It was an EGM because our scheduled AGM is very late in the year, and we wanted people to shadow roles earlier - it's a big job running a radio station. AGM date is to be voted on, at the AGM, for this time next year. so no big mystery.

Here, how about you just ask us about things? There certainly is no secrecy nor nothing out of the ordinary for any society. *shrugs*

EGM cos we decided as a society that we wanted to appoint positions earlier than the AGM in our constituion.
