Henderson State University’s radio station, KSWH-LP, is “on a mission” to remind the Arkadelphia community that it has an interactive, informative, and entertaining radio station.
“After seeing the effects of recent, devastating storms, we have added our community outreach initiative because we realized we had to do our part,” said Henderson student Diominique McKissick, who serves as station manager. “We want to be a valued means of communication in times of distress.”
Henderson students have visited local elementary schools to share the importance of listening to the radio during an emergency.
“We explain to them what a station is, how to find one, and how to identify an emergency alert,” McKissick said. “The goal is to let kids know that the local radio station will give alerts when dangerous situations occur.”
KSWH 102.5 FM-LP “The Pulse” was founded in 1970 as a student-produced radio station. Henderson State University students determine programming for the FCC-licensed station.
