Radio shows still air, featuring the personalities of local high school students. Television programs are still recorded to highlight upcoming community events.

But there is an undertone of uncertainty. The future of the programs remains in a state of limbo for the 2013-14 school year and beyond as school administrators try to save the broadcasting program.
