The Pulse and Neon Radio are products of EVIT’s Radio/Audio Production class, located at the Main Campus of EVIT. Both are public radio stations that showcase the talents of the students enrolled in the program. The broadcasts provide current EVIT Radio students the opportunity to gain valuable experience contributing as play-by-play announcers, analysts & onsite engineers. EVIT students will also handle all pre and post-production of the broadcasts.
The Pulse and Neon Radio have established themselves as the go-to place for live radio coverage of high school athletics. Pulse Sports is in its fourth year of broadcasting high school football, boys and girls high school basketball and high school baseball and softball games. This past fall, Pulse Sports broadcast 21 regular season high school football games and earlier this month, just completed a 25-game high school basketball regular season broadcast schedule.
