Townview magnet students getting schooled in the business of radio

0

KSBM Radio is live on air, and the four co-hosts are discussing how no one seems to be paying attention anymore to the Hurricane Harvey cleanup efforts.

Meanwhile, the radio show’s social media team is snapping photos and streaming the broadcast on Facebook Live, producers are guiding the direction of the discussion, and the director is making sure everything is running smoothly.

KSBM Radio is not broadcasting from some fancy building downtown; it’s coming live from the Townview Center and is entirely run by students in the marketing cluster at the School of Business and Management. Daniela, a senior and director of KSBM Radio, said students gain a variety of real world skills through the show.

“We learn by doing here on KSBM Radio: The Voice of Townview,” Daniela said. “From researching controversial topics, learning how to use social media professionally, running a live show, or making intelligent arguments, this is a great learning opportunity.”

KSBM Radio: The Voice of Townview launched in 2013, and it broadcasts weekly 10:50 a.m.-12:50 p.m. Wednesdays. You can watch on Facebook Live or listen at Live365.

For students interested in attending the School of Business and Management and potentially becoming a part of KSBM Radio, the window to apply to attend a Dallas ISD magnet school is open through Jan. 31. Go here to apply and learn more.
