Our department of student and community journalists produce a twice-weekly newscast that covers local, national and international news. We strive to produce original, educational, and local stories relevant to our listeners and to responsibly provide coverage of our underrepresented communities. Our journalists have a wide range of interests from politics to the sciences to the arts and we encourage a variety of skill sets. No journalism experience is necessary–only a willingness to learn, investigate, and write. At KCSB News, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue topics of your interest and learn the necessary skills to cover events, conduct interviews, and produce radio content.
