Could WMUB have become a different kind of station?

[Submitted to WMUB Forum 1/23/09:]

This morning I asked some students if they knew Miami had a radio station and only 1 knew. The student who knew about the station did not know the name or that it was at 88.5.

I ask myself:
Why would a student listen to the station?
How many student programs are on WMUB?

I guess we would need a larger signal footprint if we immediately exclude 17,000+ potential donors or fund raisers....

What about the community radio model ala WMNF Tampa? Would a more student friendly operation work in Oxford?

A little disappointed,
