Our team of student and community journalists produce a twice-weekly newscast of original, educational, and local content relevant to our listeners. Our journalists have a wide variety of interests, ranging from politics and public health, to environmental affairs and the arts. During the COVID-19 pandemic, KCSB News has produced and distributed a student-body newsletter to keep our community informed about case rates and resources.
