Texas Southern University Launches New Student-Run Online Radio Station

Historically Black Texas Southern University has launched KTSU2, a student-run streaming radio station. The station, also known as “The Voice,” is embedded in the School of Communication with faculty and staff working directly with students.

The radio station will run a 24-hour operation. It will feature music geared toward current students as well as hourly news, sports updates, and public affairs programs highlighting the university and the surrounding Houston area. Additionally, the staff of KTSU 90.9 FM, the public broadcast station of Texas Southern University, will provide The Voice with additional support.

“This is a true collaborative effort,” said Dr. Rockell Brown Burton, interim dean of the School of Communications. “Our journalism and communications faculty are working hand in hand with the KTSU team and our students to make this a robust learning laboratory. Our students will gain real-world experience on a daily basis with the launch of KTSU2.”
