Cable 99 turns 30!

Cable 99 celebrated its 30th anniversary on December 9 with a live three-hour television show. The show aired from 7-10 PM and featured a cast of dozens. A live jazz band provided music throughout the night, the Science Club did amazing experiments, the Drama Club led us in several improv games, and the District 99 Foundation stopped by to share their recent activities. Much fun was had, and Cable 99 got charged up for another great 30 years!

Stay tuned for reruns of the show! Look to the schedule to the right to see when it will be on the air.

WDGC National Recognition...More to Come!

WDGC received good news today at North Central College's 9th Annual John Drury High School Radio Awards.

WDGC Alumni Shane Gustafson placed 2nd in Best Newscast and 3rd in Best Public Affairs Program for programs he created during his senior year.

Eareen Yambao, currently a senior, took third place in the Best PSA category. Shane and Eareen were competing against students from around the country, as far away as California Connecticut. Congratulations!

In other news, work is gearing up for Cable 99's 30th Anniversary Celebration, to be broadcasted live on December 9, 2011. It is sure to be full of fun and surprises as we look back at 30 incredible years!

Finally, we are sorry this blog has not been updated recently. We hope you have found our new schedule of DJs to be as incredible as we have. We have almost 50 DJs at the North campus alone, and we feel fortunate to have their talent, energy, humor, and love of music!

Summer Shows, a Summer Fun Challenge, and Fun and Games on Cable 99

In case you haven't noticed, WDGC has all new shows for the summer. While we have said a fond farewell to some of our senior DJs, we have a whole slew of new DJs that will rock your world and keep your summer cool.

We are also issuing a WDGC Summer Fun Challenge. As you can see from the picture above, WDGC is the perfect summer party companion. Yes, that's our very own Mr. Waite wearing his WDGC shirt with The B-52s. Now THAT is a party! Kate was so intrigued by the shirt that she actually asked about it.

Here's the challenge, can you get a picture of yourself that somehow involves summer fun and WDGC? Maybe a concert or a picnic, or a good, old-fashioned lemonade stand. Send us your picture, and we just might post it to our blog! In particular, we are looking for pictures that somehow include a WDGC shirt or the station's call letters...

All pictures must be absolutely school appropriate, and we reserve the right, of course, to refuse any pictures. Don't send us any pictures you wouldn't want your mom, the police, or Pat Boone to see, because they just might! Send pictures to

Be on the lookout, also, for some new Cable 99 programming. In addition to airing the graduation ceremonies from both North and South High, we will be premiering a new game show called "I Can't Believe I'm Doing This on Television." Yes, it is as interesting as it sounds...
