For students at the University of Wisconsin-Superior that are interested in working at a radio station, KUWS 91.3 FM is the place.
KUWS is a student-run radio station here on campus associated with Wisconsin Public Radio.
Located on the third floor of Holden Fine and Applied Arts Center, the KUWS radio station allows students to learn about the radio broadcast industry.
KUWS offers several recording booths and ultramodern equipment for students to learn how to use. This equipment will enable students to record professional-sounding projects to air on KUWS. “We broadcast locally produced student programming weeknights from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.,” said Paul Damberg, the northern regional manager for WPR.
KUWS airs 91 Jazz Street from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. and then the Dean’s list from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Whether students have experience working at a radio station or just getting their foot in the door, KUWS welcomes all.
“I went there with no radio knowledge,” said Adam Demuth, a fifth-year student here at UWS. Demuth has been working at KUWS since his first year of college. In his fifth year at KUWS, Demuth is the director of sports broadcasting.
The radio station teaches students skills they can apply to their careers. KUWS is flexible to accommodate student’s busy schedules. “As a student, you can basically choose your hours,” said DeMuth.
