Lancer Radio’s live coverage of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses annual Rose Parade makes Lancer Radio the only college radio station in the country covering this nationally-recognized event. This parade, boasting hundreds of floats comprised of floral varieties, first graced the streets of Pasadena in 1890 and continues to be covered by every major television network in the country. Pasadena City College radio students share the outskirts of the parade route with NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox, to name a few.
The Lancer Radio Rose Parade Crew begins it’s show-prep early, recording interviews with the Rose Court, float makers and organizers of the event as early as October! Students are busy with production and a rigorous rehearsal schedule for several months to prepare them for a two-hour live event and an 8-hour work day, the day of the parade!
