Quinnipiac University's decision to close its radio station AM1220 WQUN Radio on May 31st is a really bad decision! The loss to the community is unquantifiable! This hurts Town gown relations on so many levels, most importantly in times of disasters, tornado, blizzards, car accidents, power outages many Hamden residents, especially those living in northern Hamden close to QU get their communication from WQUN. These are the very people QU has worked so hard to develop a good relationship with and this is the very community that QU thrives in. The support the station offers to not only the students, but to the business community, the local leaders and residents and the promotion it offers for the various interests of the region is immeasurable.
Logically and financially it also doesn't make good sense. The fact that many talented, well loved and and well known people there will lose their jobs while QU boasts about their growing endowment, make the closure of the station seem petty. Please reach out to the President and urge her to reconsider this terrible decision.

Friends May 31st is fast approaching and Quinnipiac University’s President has continued to dig her heels in as well as rudely and defensively dismiss those reaching out to her. Please consider helping us with a few additional community initiatives to help our mission before the sad day WQUN goes dark “The Day The Music Dies” in Hamden!
