“I didn’t know that K-State even had a radio station until I saw Ellen Collingwood tweet about one of her shows,” Sydney Dauer, a sophomore in public relations said. “I always loved playing music for my friends and saw this as an opportunity to play music for the entire Manhattan community. I reached out to Ellen asking how to get involved and I was on air within a week.”
Now Dauer is a hip-hop DJ from 9:00 – 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday nights.
“Campus radio is important because it provides a place for students to play the music they love on the campus they love,” Dauer said. “People should care about campus radio because it is a unique opportunity open to all students. Not everyone at the station is a journalism major and that’s what makes us truly unique.”
