Coyote Radio wants listeners to ‘tune in during move in’ at USD

VERMILLION, S.D. -- On Saturday, Aug. 25, students and their families driving to campus can “tune in during move in” as Coyote Radio 91.1 FM will provide live coverage throughout Move-In Day at the University of South Dakota.
 

KAOR-FM, the student radio station at USD, will broadcast from 7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. and provide live updates during Move-In Day, which kicks off Welcome Week 2012. As students and their families arrive for check-in at the DakotaDome parking lot, they can tune their radios to 91.1 and listen for updates or get timely route or residence hall information. Speakers will also be set up along the route for parents and students in line or moving around campus.

KAOR Student Manager Nathan Puhl will host the broadcast. He said he plans to interview leaders of several USD student organizations and discuss other topics pertinent to the first day of the 2012-13 academic year.

“We hope to provide the type of information and entertainment any new student will need to start off their semester,” added Puhl, who is from Chatsworth, Iowa.

Michelle Van Maanen, chair of the Contemporary Media and Journalism Department, said signs will be posted around campus encouraging visitors to listen to KAOR. She said the broadcast will also include interviews with housing and admissions representatives who will be available to answer questions or provide additional information on Move-In Day.

“This is something we did last year and we had a great response,” Van Maanen said. “It’s great for our students to gain the experience of broadcasting a live event and it’s beneficial for students and their families who can glean valuable information throughout the move-in process.”
