"It is an honor for us to induct Bob Windrem and Glenn Schuck into the WSOU Hall of Fame," says general manager Mark Maben. "Bob and Glenn have had incredibly successful and exciting careers, yet each has always taken the time to work closely with our students. Both of them truly reflect Seton Hall’s commitment to servant-leadership."
WSOU signed on the air on April 14, 1948 as the first college-owned FM station in New Jersey and one of the first FM stations in the United States. Since its inception, WSOU has been a training ground for hundreds of Seton Hall students who have gone on to outstanding careers in broadcasting, journalism, the music industry and other professions. A few of the noted WSOU alumni include Robert Wussler, former President of the CBS Television Network and co-founder of CNN; Anthony Delia, Atlantic Records’ Vice President of A&R and Marketing; Donna Fiducia, former Fox News Channel anchor and NYC television personality; and Matt Loughlin, New Jersey Devils radio play-by-play announcer.
Alumni have long played an integral role in nurturing the students who run WSOU. The station was an essential part of their college experience, and giving back is a tradition that station alumni have maintained from the start. The Hall of Fame is an opportunity for WSOU to acknowledge alumni who help current students. Robert Windrem and Glenn Schuck were chosen for the WSOU Hall of Fame for their active roles as mentors at the station and for their exceptional work in the industry.
