Making Calls with NocTel since June 2010
Contrary to the image of a contemporary world where most of our entertainment and information is delivered through the cloud, many continue to turn to the radio airwaves for listening and participating. Bearing this in mind, reliable phone systems that have more capability than simply allowing listeners to call in are a crucial component to operations. Radio personalities and operations staff can agree: operation is much more than being heard, it’s also sharing with others to be heard as well.
For a community in the foot hills of the Great Smoky mountains in North Carolina, WKRK is a well-known radio station providing many services to its listeners and community. Along with its popular caller driven trade show Party Line, WKRK provides the community with local news, hazard warnings, weather updates, and a forum for finding and reporting community problems such as missing pets in addition to normal scheduled music. WKRK owner and host Tim Radford came on board with NocTel 2010 in the hope of a better way to manage calls on air and off.
