As a Connection to Our Community

Kennesaw State‘s official student run streaming radio station offers unique programming, commercial free. An eclectic mix of content reaches and reflects the rich, cultural diversity of our campus and beyond. Rock, Pop, Rap, Talk, Sports, News, Jazz, Oldies, Folk, World and specialty programs air every day, all day. Have a listen at ksuradio.com.

Because Owl Radio is a streaming radio station, our listenership extends beyond KSU's campuses, from our Student Centers to our 55,000 alumni everywhere. While radio listenership declines, online radio listenership continues to grow. Our audience doesn‘t just listen - they call, chat, watch via the webcam and interact with us.

As a KSU Owl Radio financial supporter, your business benefits through cost effective, specifically-targeted marketing to a well-educated, quality-conscious audience. Your business receives name recognition without commercial "clutter," and builds your business image with the Owl Radio listener.
