Black Squirrel Radio is an online radio station run by students of Kent State University, broadcasting exclusively on campus television and the Web. Previously known as WKSR, the station's name was changed in 2005 due to a legal conflict with WKSR-FM, the broadcast station using the same call letters [ [http://media.www.kentnewsnet.com/media/storage/paper867/news/2005/06/29/News/Wksr-Becomes.Bs.Radio-1517344.shtml WKSR becomes BS Radio] ] . Black Squirrel Radio is overseen by faculty from Kent State University's Journalism and Mass Communication program. Since the name change, Black Squirrel Radio has been expanding the breadth of their content to include podcasting and talk radio shows in addition to music shows. Black Squirrel Radio currently has 120 students on its staff.

Black Squirrel Radio's lineage can be traced to the 1930s and the Radio Workshop in the School of Speech at Kent State University [ [http://jmc.kent.edu/home/feature/2006/November/BSR/index.htm The Story of Black Squirrel Radio] ] .

Format

Mainly Urban, Rock and Local music. The format lends itself to the station mascot's name, "Url the Squirrel" (Urban Rock Local).
