RSU Radio and This Land Press Partner to Broadcast 'This Land Radio'
The new radio show that focuses on life and culture in Middle America, "This Land Radio," will be coming to Rogers State University Radio starting in June, as part of a broadcast partnership between the two organizations.
RSU's KRSC-FM 91.3 will broadcast the first episode of "This Land Radio" at 2 p.m., Saturday, June 1, and will continue with weekly airings of the show at the same day and time.
"This Land Radio" is created and produced by Sarah Geis and Abby Wendle, who are both audio producers for the Tulsa-based media company This Land Press. This Land Press has gained national attention in publications such as The New York Times, The Paris Review and the Columbia Journalism Review for its unique brand of journalism intensely focused on telling the story of contemporary Oklahoma and its people.
The first season of "This Land Radio" covers a wide range of subjects, from a long-format documentary on the Tulsa radio evangelist Billy James Hargis, to Oklahoma poetry and food trucks. The series features notable guests like Oklahoma musicians John Fullbright and Skating Polly, alongside Oklahomans whose names may be lesser known but still provide significant insight to the state's culture and history.
The broadcast partnership between RSU Radio and This Land Press is part of a broader collaboration between the two local media organizations. RSU Public TV is also airing "This Land TV," and This Land Press news editor Holly Wall regularly appears as a featured commentator on the station's news show, "OK News Analysis."
RSU Radio is a student-driven college radio station that features innovative content and alternative music. For more information about This Land Press and its other media offerings, visit www.thislandpress.com.
