WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO, & WHY IT MATTERS
- Founded in 1975, 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.
- We provide students with hands-on broadcast experience, support emerging artists, promote Los Angeles culture, and document USC events.
- We create unique educational opportunities for students, provide a supportive community for creative expression, and broadcast the sounds of USC to the world.
- Throughout the year we host a series of concerts and events aimed at making local music and art accessible to the USC community and all of our listeners. This includes KXSC Fest, a one-of-a-kind music, arts, and film festival held each Spring that brings together USC’s student community to create a unique experience through forward thinking talent curation and creative approaches to venue and environment design.

WE NEED YOUR HELP
Due to dwindling funding, college radio stations are facing program closures across the country and we're trying to prevent this from happening at USC.
KXSC does not receive any guaranteed funding from USC, and every year we earn less and less from PSA underwriting donations. Student staff and DJs pay membership dues every semester, but we still struggle to cover day-to-day finances and operations costs.
Our equipment is an expensive but necessary part of our programming. Maintaining our studio is essential to our ability to record and broadcast our wide range of unique shows. Your donations go toward making sure we have everything we need to continue to deliver high quality programming to all of our listeners around the world.
