In the MKTG 307 - Creative Advertising course, the Marketing Minor Students got to visit iHEART Media.  The tour was directed by Dewayne Chavez (Program director and on air KRQ) and “Rico” Eddie Hernandez (on air personality HOT 98.3) and was coordinated by station General Manager Debra Wagner and assistant Daniella Grijalva.  The discussion centered on how RADIO plays an important role in Integrated Marketing Communications and is a viable choice for advertisers.
