Station Philosophy and Mission
WHO WE ARE:
We are the independent, student-run radio station of the University of Southern California, and the Trojan community.
WHAT WE DO:
We provide students with hands-on broadcast experience, support emerging artists, promote Los Angeles culture, and document USC events.
WHY IT MATTERS:
We create unique educational opportunities for students, provide a supportive community for creative expression, and broadcast the sounds of USC to the world.
KXSC Radio (formerly KSCR) is the 100% student-run radio station of the University of Southern California; we are volunteer, non-profit, donation funded and we provide the USC community with original radio programming 24 hours a day.
KXSC traces its roots to the original KUSC, which was operated by students starting in 1946. KUSC transitioned to classical programming and moved off-campus in the mid-1970s, but students still demanded a broadcast voice. So on April 2, 1975, a dozen students gathered in a converted production studio to start KSCR, a radio station run by and for students.
KXSC has undergone yet another revolution with our new home in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center, but our approach to radio is still the same: All-student run music, sports and news broadcasts that encourage diversity and a student-centric approach.
