Pulse is the official radio station of the London School of Economics Students Union. The station is managed by an elected Executive Committee, which is headed by the Station Manager.

Together, Pulse,The Beaver newspaper, The Script journal and LooSE TV make up the Media Group of the LSE Students Union.

Pulse is staffed by student volunteers who act as D.J.s, technicians, and producers, and is funded by the LSESU, advertising revenue, and donations.

During term Pulse can be heard broadcasting live in the LSE Union Café, the SU Shop, the Three Tuns student bar and via the website.


Pulse began broadcasting on February 1st 1999. For the first few years Pulse broadcast for four week periods on an FM Restricted Service License. Currently the station broadcasts a live stream over the internet and around the London School of Economics campus. Alongside live programming Pulse also produces a number of podcasts during the year.

Membership consists of over 50 DJs playing a mix of mainstream and specialist music, as well as several dozen other students in the areas of promotions and advertising, broadcast journalism, technical, production and programming. In September 2005 Pulse was awarded the ‘Student Website of the Year’ at the Guardian Student Media Awards 2005. Starting in 2006, Pulse headed the LSE SU RAG Week with a 118 hour-long live broadcastathon, and along with LooSE TV organised the live broadcasting of the LSE SU election results. This has repeated every year since. The LSE SU Media Group Awards take place in the summer term, jointly organised with the other members of the LSE SU Media Group.


In term time Pulse broadcasts live on campus to students every weekday. Additionally, Pulse broadcasts continually online at www.pulse.dj.
