A student-run radio station is currently in development at City College and will likely hit the radio waves as early as this summer.
The station will focus on providing students with valuable hands-on training and experience in radio production, while also serving as a campus-based alternative to commercial and government broadcasting.
The station programming will be devoted solely to the interests, concerns and musical tastes of the students running it.
“Jazz 88.3 is excited to lend our expertise, support and finances to help more students than ever experience the joy of building and operating a radio station,” said Mark Deboskey, KSDS station manager.
The station will be located in the C-Building adjacent to the KSDS Jazz 88.3 studios. While the new station will have the benefit of using the equipment and space of KSDS, the student personnel will be in full control of programming.
Though many details stages, the new radio station will comply with FCC guidelines.
