Whether working in an office cubicle, on a factory floor or along the aisles of a retail store, time spent in the break room is usually a quiet time, away from pressure, away from work routines and often a place where co-workers can converse in a relaxed environment.
That’s the idea being WFCF/Flagler College Radio's program called appropriately, The Break Room. Hosted by Paul K. Williamson, the city’s Public Affairs Director, the 15-minute weekly program offers a behind-the scenes look at the workings of city government through interviews with people key in the city’s day-to-day operations. The Break Room airs on Wednesday at 5:30pm and is repeated on Saturday at 8:00am.
“Dan McCook, WFCF station manager suggested a weekly program with information about the city,” said Williamson. “We settled on a format of having a conversation with the professionals who work for the city. There are always the big issues that gain a lot of attention, but we wanted to focus on the day-in and day-out working of local government. I would like for listeners, at least at some time during the program, to say to themselves ‘I didn’t know that.’ ”
Since the program started airing in late February 2010, guests have included over fifty division supervisors, department managers and crew leaders from every sector of city staff.
Williamson, now in his 12th year as Public Affairs Director, is a 1977 graduate of Flagler College, and says he’s proud of this opportunity.
“The city has a number of ways we share information with the community, including the weekly info-email, News & Notes, quarterly newsletters inserted in utility bills, and of course the city’s web site,” said Williamson adding, “and now we have radio. I appreciate the college making this opportunity available, and as an alumni, am especially proud to be working with the college.”
WFCF, “Radio with a Reason,” is a 24/7 non-commercial, educational radio station staffed by students in the Flagler College Communication Department and community volunteers. WFCF started broadcasting in the fall of 1993 with the mission to “to provide a source of quality radio programming for the greater St. Johns County area and to provide a superior learning environment for students majoring in broadcasting at Flagler College.”
