Thank you for making a donation to the Bob Slade Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Bob Slade, who studied journalism and communications at Queens College, was a prominent voice on African-American radio in New York City as a creator and longtime host of the call-in commentary program “Open Line.” His longest tenure was at 98.7-FM, then an R&B station known by the call letters WRKS and more colloquially as Kiss-FM, where he worked from the mid-1970s until WBLS and WRKS merged in 2012. Among his many accomplishments, Mr. Slade earned a Peabody Award for WRKS in 1994 for another music-themed project, “The Rise and Fall of Vee-Jay Records,” a documentary about an influential Chicago R&B label for which he and Johnny Meadow were executive producers.

Bob passed away on March 23, 2019, but his legacy will live on through this scholarship.


If you prefer to make a donation by check, please make out to the Queens College Foundation (with the Bob Slade Memorial Scholarship listed in the memo line) and mail to Queens College, Kiely Hall 907, 65-30 Kissena Blvd, Flushing, NY 11367.

The scholarship fund will be endowed once the fund threshold is reached, and awards will be given from the interest of the fund. If the threshold is not reached in an amount of time agreed upon by Queens College and Emmis Communications, the fund will not be endowed and awards will be given from the principal.
