Although the WTJU student managerial board had considered the positive ramifications of hiring a full-time paid staff member as early as the 1970's, the needed funding was never available. But in 1992 the station's FCC license was threatened by the filing of an improper document, and the University reconsidered hiring a manager. In this clip, Chuck talks about the decision of WTJU and the University to support two paid, full-time management positions for the station.
