Be a DJ

How do I get a show on KWSB?

The purpose of the station is to provide an experiential learning opportunity for Western students and to serve public needs in the Gunnison community.  KWSB develops students' interests and skills in all elements of radio broadcasting, and provides a starting point for students to further a career in media. It also fosters interaction with the community by airing public service announcements, participating in local events, and doing remote broadcasts.
