BLUE BELL PA – Montco Radio, the student-operated Internet radio station at Montgomery County Community College’s central campus in Blue Bell PA, has been recognized by College Media Journal (CMJ) as one of the top five college Internet-only radio stations in the country.

CMJ is a New York City-based network that tracks the activities and radio airplay of college and non-commercial broadcast stations across the United States. Its award arrived just as the MCCC station moved into the college’s new Advanced Technology Center.

The station dates back to the late 1960s, when it began as a student club to DJ music on campus. In the early 1970s, the station gained an audience when it began broadcasting in the College Hall cafeteria on the Blue Bell campus.  The station began broadcasting on the Internet in 2003, and in 2008, the College began offering Campus Radio Workshops I and II courses to place greater emphasis on professional content.
