Gilbert completes software certification

Amid a global pandemic that kept staff and volunteers out of the station for nearly four months, student radio station WKNC 88.1 FM HD-1/HD-2 stayed on the air 24/7/365. To keep the station sounding fresh, music directors continued to review and add music and even upgraded their software from RCS Selector to the company’s GSelector, a goal-based scheduling program that immediately improved the sound of WKNC.

Now, station adviser and Student Media Associate Director Jamie Lynn Gilbert has completed the RCS Academy GSelector Certification program. She is one of about 100 users to have completed the certification program since its launch in 2019. The certification program offers in-depth training on a variety of topics such as library selection, clock development and goals, rules, and priority list management.

WKNC has been using RCS Selector, GSelector’s predecessor, since 2004 and has more than 27,000 songs in its database. RCS software is used by 14,500 media outlets worldwide.
