As of January 23rd, 2012, State In The Real has joined into a collaborative effort with The Lion 90.7fm.  The explanation is as follows: In response to the evolving music landscape at Penn State University, State in the Real and The LION 90.7fm have decided to become a collaborative effort in order to better deliver content to our audience and the local music community. Both entities are student run and will withhold these standards as they move forward in their collaborative efforts. The LION 90.7fm, the Class Gift of 1951, has long been known as “The Soundtrack to Penn State”, reaching students online and over the radio on channel 90.7fm. The LION 90.7fm hopes to better broadcast relevant, local musical content both over terrestial radio and online with this strategic collaboration with State in the Real. State In The Real has always been focused on providing news, reviews, and interviews by “stating the real” information on the Penn State University music scene since January 2011 via This collaborative effort will create a music network for Penn State University and the surrounding areas.
