KSDB-FM offers special program produced by students

By Vern Wirka

The students in the K-State Planning in Pop Culture class have produced a two-hour radio special for broadcast and streaming on KSDB-FM. The two-hour special will be on KSDB-FM at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 1.

Fourteen students, under the direction of Huston Gibson, Katherine Nesse and LaBarbara Wigfall, in cooperation with Jennifer Edgar, Eric Nehm and Jared Clark of the KSDB-FM production department, produced the program. Students nominate songs, suggest movies and stories and talk about their own experiences to enrich and diversify the discussion. The objective of the course is to encourage students to think creatively about how our natural, social and built environment affects us as individuals and as a society.

In addition to being broadcast over the air on 91.9 MHz, the program can be heard on K-State Campus Cable channel 25, streamed on thewildcat919.com and is available on mobile apps for Android and Apple.

Last June marked the first Planning in Pop Culture Radio Special broadcast on KSDB-FM, the Wildcat 91.9. The first broadcast won the New Horizon Award from the Kansas chapter of the American Planning Association.
