Meet the folks who put the "rad" in radio

The Black Squirrel Radio staff is made up of the finest students Kent State has to offer,

who all share a passion for radio and delivering great content to the KSU student body and abroad.

From our General Manager Brooke Forrest, all the way down to our Freshman DJ’s,

everyone works like crazy to make BSR all that it can be.

Check out each team member to learn a little bit more about what we all do.

All questions about a department should be addressed to the director of that department.
