Jeffrey Epstein, New York Philanthropist, Heralds The First Student Radio Station In The Caribbean

NEW YORK, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The prominent New York financier,  Jeffrey Epstein, with offices in New York City and St. Thomas has heralded the launch of the first college run radio station in the US Virgin Islands.

Staffed by students, the new radio station, WUVI, represents the University of the Virgin Islands, and covers local content from Caribbean music, college events and politics to syndicated news programs.

Jeffrey Epstein's VI Foundation which is based on the island of St. Thomas, supports education and youth programs across the US Virgin Islands and has been an avid supporter of the US Virgin Island's Department of Education. The foundation is closely following the station's success. "When students are given the opportunity to shape their education, their motivation and learning skyrocket," Jeffrey Epstein asserted. "Student listeners will be equally inspired." In addition to funding education, the  Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation has also funded youth programs in the arts, sports and humanities, such as the St. Thomas Baseball Explorers and the Rising Stars Youth Steel Orchestra.

The station's founder, Alexander Randall, is the chairman of UVI's Department of Music, Communication, Arts and Theater and headed a class on radio production. Radio students were given a weekly time on the local broadcaster Radio 1, to report news and collected opinions. Eventually, an impressed UVI President David Hall approached Randall about creating a school station.

Today, the WUVI station reaches the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Dominica and will seek a switch to solar-powered radio waves.

The Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation supports a wide range of youth initiatives across the US Virgin Islands. Jeffrey Epstein is a native New Yorker, a financier and a science and education philanthropist. In 2003, he established the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics at Harvard University with a $30 million dollar grant. He is a former member of the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, Rockefeller University in New York, the New York Academy of Science and sits on the board of the Mind, Brain and Behavior Committee at Harvard University.
