About North Gate Radio

North Gate Radio is a weekly radio show produced by the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley. Listen live each Thursday on KALX 90.7 FM at 9 AM. Everything you hear is created by students in J275. The class covers the spectrum of putting together a radio show, including everything from how to write for the ear to technical editing. Students rotate through the roles of a show team and each get a turn being producer, anchor, reporter and news writer. Queena Sook Kim teaches J275 and advises the show.
