Two studios with broadcast capability and ten workstations for Radio NJOY 91.3
Radio NJOY 91.3, the training station of FHWien der WKW, received two studios and ten workstations with broadcast capability. The newly created area for the editorial team enables a close exchange between teaching and practice. For FH-Prof.in Mag.a Dr.in Daniela Süssenbacher, Head of Journalism & Media Management Study Programs at FHWien der WKW, this is the key to success. “By renewing the structural and technical infrastructure, we are not only able to impart high standards of content to prospective journalists, but also keep them up to date technically. With the conversion, we guarantee that our students will be able to perform high-quality journalistic work after their training.”
