WKSU Turns 70

WKSU will celebrate 70 years of broadcasting throughout 2020. Founded on Oct. 2, 1950, WKSU started with just a 10-watt signal that barely reached the edge of the Kent Campus. It has since grown into an award-winning station broadcasting to 22 counties across Ohio.

Over the years, WKSU broadcasted everything from Kent State sporting events to classical music to today’s primary format: local and national news.

Several events are planned to celebrate this milestone. Stay up to date with WKSU activities by signing up for the station’s free e-newsletters at wksu.org/subscribe.
