WPMD Break-In

During the fall 2012 semester there were four break-ins at Cerritos College and at beginning the spring 2013 semester there was an attempt to break in to WPMD, the campus’s radio station occurred.

A double window of the radio station was smashed, and a speaker was stolen from above it.

“It happened on Sunday. I was here on Saturday and everything was fine,” Radio and Television professor Craig Breit said.

“Campus police has not informed me about anything,” he continued.

A work order has been placed to repair the window, but a timetable is unknown.

“You would think that with a broken window some action would be taken,” Breit said.

Over the years WPMD has been home to many students.

Gayle Parks, a biblical studies major, has been around WPMD for many years and shares the sentiment that it’s a home away from home.

“Nobody tells us what goes on around here,” she added, “What can you do? These things keep happening,”

Without the speaker in place, the area surrounding WPMD has been silent throughout the opening week of the semester.

“This is the first time something has happened since the station was renovated in 2000. CDs have been taken from time-to-time, but nothing to this extent has ever happened,” Breit added.

The radio program was affected by budget cuts before the fall 2012 semester, and was previously a fully operating program run by the students of Cerritos College.
