KXCV to air Gov. Nixon's remarks at CIE dedication
KXCV-KRNW, Northwest's 100,000-watt public radio station, will broadcast live from dedication ceremonies for Northwest's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship on Wednesday, Sept. 9. Gov. Jay Nixon is scheduled to speak during the event, which begins at 2 p.m.
KXCV broadcasts at 90.5 on the FM dial, and KRNW, a repeater station located in Chillicothe, broadcasts at 88.9. Listeners can also tune in via streaming audio at www.kxcv.org .
As part of its CIE dedication coverage, the station will also air interviews with University administrators, corporate tenants from the center's high-tech business incubator and economic development officials from the surrounding region.
Others scheduled to speak at the dedication include state Sen. Brad Lager, state Rep. Mike Thomson, both of Maryville, and Northwest President John Jasinski.
Completed this summer, the 46,679 square foot center has two synergistic components: a mixed-use technology business incubator and an academic facility. The incubator is designed to house several start-up companies, and the academic facility has been programmed to house Northwest's new nanotechnology baccalaureate degree program, which began courses this fall.
Nanoscience is the study of the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale and generally deals with structures of 100 nanometers or smaller. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter.
Representatives from on-site and virtual business incubator tenants will be introduced during the dedication. These include Riley and Rabel Consulting Services, LLC, ( www.rileyandrabel.com ), Carbolytic Materials Company ( www.carbolytic.com ), Practical Sustainability ( www.practicalsustainability.com ) and Alyoop Inc., ( www.alyoop.com )
