RSU Radio

KRSC FM 91.3, Rogers State University’s public radio station has been promoting community and culture over the airwaves in northeast Oklahoma for more than three decades.

A student-driven non-commercial station, RSU Radio broadcasts at 91.3 FM and is located on the RSU campus in Claremore.

Much of the station’s programming is locally produced, including “Cherokee Voices and Sounds,” hosted by Dennis Sixkiller, that focuses on preserving and promoting Cherokee language, stories, culture and events.

RSU Professor Dr. Hugh Foley hosts “Native Air,” which shares music and events for all Native American tribes in the region. Foley is a nationally recognized authority on Native American issues such as the use of Native American symbolism by athletics teams.

Daily programming features cutting-edge music featuring at least one local band every hour. “OK Connection,” hosted by RSU alumnus Garrett Powders, highlights music and entertainment in Oklahoma, including interviews with artists and musicians. Monday through Friday, 91.3 features alternative music, featuring artists already popular in Europe as well as up-and-coming artists needing airplay. RSU’s announcers consist of Communications students, RSU faculty and individuals with a love of music that isn’t being played anywhere else.

The station also broadcasts Claremore High School football and a variety of athletics for the RSU Hillcats. The community outreach extends online at www.RSURadio.com with articles on regional entertainment and a complete program listing.

“We’re proud to say that the station has grown with the community,” KRSC General Manager Cathy Coomer said.

RSU Radio has been recognized as a leader in the Tulsa metro market and was voted the best radio station in Tulsa for the 2013 Absolute Best of Tulsa awards. RSU Radio has also been recognized for outstanding programming and hosting by national publications such as Paste magazine and College Media Journal.

RSU Radio continues to be an excellent training ground for students. In the last decade, more than ten communications students have received scholarships as well as regional and national awards recognizing their work at RSU Radio.
