CCPS has a regular monthly radio slot on the Shelley Irwin Morning Show at WGVU.

The purpose of the show, called CCPS Community Connections, is to showcase the talent within the college and it also allows us to place the spotlight on faculty and staff projects which are engaging our community partners from a teaching, scholarship or service perspective.  

The CCPS Community Connections ‘live’ radio interviews are scheduled on the first Monday of each month at 10:00 AM.
