What a delight to welcome so many residents to KOCT’s annual Open House on Tuesday, June 28th!

Visitors had an opportunity to be Directors, Camera Operators and even Candidates for public office (& read TelePrompTer lines from San Diego news anchor, Ron Burgundy.)

Visitors sampled delicious desserts courtesy of Petite Madeline (thanks Christine!), root beer from the new brewing company, Midnight Jack and nutrition bars from KOCT’s neighbor Nii bars.
MiraCosta College’s Jazz Quartet performed in the KOCT studio and visitors were encouraged to operate and record the concert on professional studio cameras.

KOCT’s Board of Directors were on hand to answer questions and lead guests on tours of the station. KOCT’s Station Manager Jacob Rush did a great job leading KOCT’s production team, interns and volunteers on the elaborate set-up of the studio, mobile studio and edit bays. Mark your calendar for this annual event next April and thanks to everyone who attended.
