Great Plains Radio History Symposium today
The Great Plains Radio History Symposium is from 1-5 p.m. today in the Hemisphere Room of Hale Library.
The symposium will focus on Kansas State University's contributions to radio. Ralph and Mary Ellen Titus will discuss the history of KSAC/KKSU. Ralph Titus was a longtime KSAC program director and manager and the only person to win the Kansas Association of Broadcasters award for classical music DJ. Mary Ellen Titus is writing a history of the station. A panel of former and current staff members will talk about working at the station. In addition, a panel of former and current staff members of student radio station KSDB will share their experiences working at that station.
It is free and open to the public. Attendees will be able to view the sesquicentennial exhibit, "Generations of Success: K-State History in Special Collections," in the gallery adjacent to the Hemisphere Room.
