Radio Free Charlotte

Join Radio Free Charlotte!

Do you have a passion for music? Do you want to find your voice? Radio Free Charlotte is looking for new students to join our on-air staff!

No radio experience is required, and you can be ANY major, ANY class level!

Hey Class of 2022! Be sure to find us at Niner Nights at the Student Niner Media table!

We like variety – whether your interest is in hip-hop, fashion, news, sports, classic rock, metal, indie, or something else alltogether, there’s a place for you.We’re always looking for original ideas.

Our programming is student-focused, we play a wide variety of music through the weekly on-air shows created by and for the students of Niner Nation!

Show timeslots start at 30 minutes and range up to 2 hours. We give creative-control of the show to the host, with just a few basic guidelines to follow, so its truly your own creation and because radio is not as much fun alone, bring a friend (or two) on-air as your co-hosts.

Joining Radio Free Charlotte is a great way to build experience and start networking with people, both on and off-campus.


To apply for a show timeslot, fill out our application on Niner Engage. Applications are due by September 4th at 5pm.

(Applications received during the summer will be reviewed in early-September.)


Not interested in being on-air?

That’s okay. We also have opportunities to get involved with our promotions/public relations staff, and welcome students who want to learn more dropping by any of our meetings. We meet on Tuesdays at 5pm in the Student Niner Media conference room on the lower level of the Popp-Martin Student Union!
