KWSC-FM / 91.9 "The Cat"
KWSC-FM is as an on-air training ground for students, regularly winning college media awards. The station, known as “91.9 The Cat,” offers an alternative rock format, but also has specialty shows including Country, Oldies, Independent Music, and News/Sports/Talk programs. The station broadcasts a full schedule of Wayne State College home athletic events with student play-by-play announcers. KWSC is student managed and operated, with support from a faculty advisor, providing practical experience in working on the air, in audio production, planning of special events and promotions, and in leadership and personnel management. In order to be on the air, students must first complete a Radio Production course, offered in the fall each year, and be registered for a Radio Workshop class. KWSC is a fully equipped radio station, including contemporary digital audio editing workstations. KWSC is one of the oldest campus radio stations in Nebraska, serving the Wayne community since 1971.



KWSC-TV delivers live sports and newscasts to the campus and Wayne community, also serving as the educational access channel for the city of Wayne. As an extension of curricula in mass communication studies, much of its programming is developed by students through classes taught by WSC professors. The station is also student managed with the guidance of its faculty advisor, and provides the opportunity for students to acquire real world experience in television programming, production, and engineering. KWSC-TV maintains a fully equipped broadcast studio and digital editing capabilities, and has won numerous regional awards for news, sports, and entertainment programming.
