GROSSMONT COLLEGE — Did you know that Grossmont College owns and operates a fully functional radio station? Yes, it’s true! As part of the Media Communication’s degree curriculum, the Department offers a class, MCOM119 sections A-D, in which students learn about on and off-air radio/audio production techniques and what it takes to manage, produce and operate at a radio station.

This spring MCOM119, better known as Griffin Radio, will be providing live radio coverage of all of Grossmont baseball home games each Tuesday and Thursday, starting at 2 p.m. Grossmont students Vince Ruffino and Andrew Vasquez will be announcing the games.

In addition to play-by-play coverage, the radio station’s promotion workers (aka Griffin Girls) will be interviewing featured players and giving away customized “Player Packs” to fans attending at Noel Mickelson field. Attendees will have the opportunity to win these great swag bags by correctly answering baseball-themed trivia questions throughout the game. The contest is sponsored by Grossmont College and Griffin Radio.
