FAQ 

>What is KLSU.fm’s Format?

KLSU is a college rock format radio station and a core charting station with NACC. Top 200 charts are a compilation of the most popular new music being played by college radio stations across the country. KLSU’s playlists are weighed when compiling these charts. Our current format can best be labeled College Rock Alternative.

What about Specialty Shows?

While our core programming is new music aimed at the college demographic, it is not the whole of our programming schedule. Nights and weekends KLSU airs “freeform” programming. This is time allotted to any form of music to be played by student DJs. Any student in good standings with the school can have their own few hours on the radio to play what they choose.

How Can I Get a Job at KLSU?

At the beginning of every semester we rehire the entire staff. Some employees of the previous semester reapply but a large portion graduate or move on. Positions are constantly becoming available, but it is best to turn an application in at the end of one semester in anticipation of next. An online application can be found on the student media website at lsunow.com/application.
