Assignment: Radio returns to the airwaves for its seventh season as we showcase some of our best stories from the previous semester. Jarrel Wade explores the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History's collection of dinosaur bones, and discovers what makes these artifacts, which have remained "grounded" for millions of years before their discovery, so special. Brian Hardzinski examines new forms of news delivery, especially the new feature on the Nintendo Wii which offers Associated Press news and images to Wii users. Find out how the Wii News Channel affects the news consumption habits of its users, as well as its role in the future of media. Morgan Fenn explores the concept of gender-blind dorms. Several universities on the East Coast have already implemented housing policies that match roommates without regard to students' gender. FInd out the pros and cons of this innovative method, as well as OU Housing's take on the issue. Our "Word of the Day" this semester is "grounded", and Jerry Wofford finds out what class is like when it's anything but grounded as he heads down to the Max Westheimer Airport, where the Department of Aviation teaches students how to become Flying Sooners. Back in April, Assignment: Radio spent a Saturday in Downtown Norman covering the annual 89er Day Parade that commemorates the Oklahoma Land Run. We hear exerpts from several of the participants, judges, and spectators about what they're most looking forward to, and what 89er Day means to them. Photo Slideshow
