Licensed to Southeastern, KSLU is the
only public radio station on the north shore and one of only eight public
radio stations statewide. In addition to running programming from Public
Radio International, KSLU also features local news and interviews with
Mary Pirosko, Rosa Dunn’s "Point of View" talk show, and an eclectic blend
of music, including an hour of blues each weekday from 6-7 p.m. on the
“KSLU Blues Cruise.” A local music show airs in the evenings, and the station
plans to expand local music content throughout the day in the near future,
said General Manager Wayne Cain.
KSLU also serves as a training
ground for Southeastern broadcast communication students, who work behind
the scenes and on-air, and are trained by a professional staff.
