Inter-College Radio Network.
Uniting two radio stations, WNTC and WCCT, Clarkson's
network was one of the few such organizations in the country. Although both stations were
owned by Clarkson and were located on the Clarkson campus, they were operated jointly by
students from Clarkson and State University College as a recognized activity of their respective
student governments. More than eight miles of interconnecting radio lines linked the Clarkson
village campus and the State University campus, including special remote lines in the Clarkson
hockey arena and gymnasium, and the auditorium, gymnasium, and Crane Hall at State. One
unique feature was the ICRN Newsroom, located in Lewis House, which provided a direct
United Press International news link with all three stations.
