A little more about KCSU...

The mission of KCSU is to train students to collaboratively operate a radio station that delivers and creates content that informs and inspires our listeners.

KCSU programming is proudly curated and produced exclusively by Colorado State University students. The leadership team is made up of 18 part-time student staff that manages everything from promotions, to video production, to audio engineering. The voices you hear on KCSU are CSU-student DJs who pass our 4-week training program in order to host their weekly 2-hour shows.

KCSU broadcasts underrepresented music, news, and sports coverage, and adds a new album to the music rotation nearly everyday to an ever-growing library of more than 30,000 songs. From 7 am to 3 pm daily, KCSU’s DJs play this new music rotation of alternative genre-spanning music. After rotation, until 7 am the DJs host specialty programming, which can focus on a musical style, news, talk, and sports.

Advisors

General Manager, Audio and Music Student Media Advisor: Hannah Copeland

Hannah Copeland is 90.5 KCSU’s general manager and the audio and music student media adviser for Rocky Mountain Student Media. Copeland mentors and manages about 20 KCSU part-time staff and 50 volunteer DJs, podcasters and news and sports reporters. As the Audio Adviser at RMSMC, she oversees all audio technology from the radio tower to the live bands playing on CTV. She thinks the best part of working at KCSU and RMSMC is mentoring so many enthusiastic and creative students. She is constantly inspired by their dedication, ideas and innovations. Copeland joined KCSU and RMSMC in 2016. Since then, KCSU has doubled its volunteer base. But, KCSU is still striving to have a 24/7 full-live DJ schedule and a robust offering of podcasts for kcsufm.com. Before Copeland threw everything she owned in a U-Haul to move to the beautiful Rocky Mountains, she worked as an announcer and reporter for KCUR, National Public Radio’s affiliate station in Kansas City, Missouri. Hannah got her start in audio while she owned and operated a non-profit independent music venue, The Aquadome, in Kirksville, Missouri. She applies her journalism skills from NPR and her arts business management skills from The Aquadome every day at KCSU. Copeland plays drums in various indie bands, likes karaoke, kayaking, playing hockey and peanut butter. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Missouri Kansas City with bachelor of arts degrees in communication studies and business administration with an entrepreneurial focus. ​
