RSU Radio Named One of ‘40 Best Little Stations' in U.S.
RSU Radio FM 91.3 has been named one of the "40 best little radio stations in the U.S." by Paste magazine.
The magazine, which is distributed nationally, ranked RSU Radio among the best stations broadcasting at 5,000 watts or under.
"This student-run station mixes hip-hop, rock and electronica," according to the magazine. "Reader Timothy Harmon Jr. says, ‘this is my favorite because they play a huge variety with multiple different radio shows (including) a lot of indie bands.'"
RSU Radio is the only live broadcast, college alternative radio station in northeastern Oklahoma.
The station presents a wide variety of original programming, debuts local musicians, and airs live sporting events. RSU students and faculty program the station, charting music to the College Music Journal.
"We've made so many great strides over the years," said Cathy Coomer, assistant professor and general manager of RSU Radio. "This is another sign that people are not only taking notice, but also enjoying the programming that we work so hard to put on the air."
