Radio began operation in the fall of 2004. We began airing as 102.9FM WLAS in the summer of 2016. Our programming
is chosen and produced by the students and is aimed to serve
Lasell College students, employees, families
and friends with relevant information and entertainment that
reflects the needs of academia and community.
In addition to
our music programming, we report daily news briefs every hour
to inform the college of local news, weather, campus events
and sports. Lasell
College Radio's format emphasizes diversity with
a variety of musical formats ranging from Radio 200, Loud
Rock and Hip Hop/R&B and by original, open-format specialty
shows throughout the weekend.
Since the station's
launch, we have supported important charities through the
development and airing of PSA's for organizations including
Tsunami Relief Fund, Adopt a Highway, CHOICE, Make a Wish
Foundation, Project Bread, SADD, Jimmy Fund, FEMA, MADD, Red
Cross, as well as PSA's on recycling, underage drinking, Darfur,
Alzheimer's disease, Asthma and Hurricane Katrina Relief.
In March 2008 we held a charity concert that earned $930.00
for The Jimmy Fund. This event's success added to our mission
of supporting local charities through radio-sponored events
for the Lasell College community. Since fall 2005, LCR has
been broadcasting Lasell College Sports. Since that time we
have been broadcasting all home games for Lacrosse, Soccer,
Volleyball, Basketball and Softball.
In addition to
our radio programming and charity services, LCR prides itself
on creating campus-based entertainment and opportunities for
the student body to promote active campus activity and student
involvement. In October 2005 we co-supported the Lily Holbrook
Coffeehouse performance with the Campus Activities Board, which was the largest Coffeehouse
turnout for its day. That same month we co-sponsored Lasell's
largest turnout for a costume ball, Creeps N Ghouls -- which
continues to draw record-breaking crowds every October. We now offer on-air time slots every Sunday for various academic initiatives across the college campus.
