Newest sound on regional airwaves: college radio from Centenary's KSCL, 91.3
Alysia Leyendecker is new director of, in effect, the newest station in Shreveport. Among her goals: "With our upgrade to 2100 watts, we're told we're reaching something like 350,000 people. We're getting calls from Texas and Arkansas, and people are genuinely very excited. We're working hard to try to expand the presence of KSCL in the community. We want our DJs to be known, and we want to be a media force in Shreveport.
My main goal as station manager is to try to make sure that KSCL does not stay the same station with just a larger broadcast radius. This does not mean that I want us to become a commercial station, as KSCL is and always will be student run and operated.
We will always play underrepresented voices and will do everything we can to assure that KSCL never turns into a top 40 station. I would just like to see KSCL expand as much as possible. I would love to see our professionalism increase along with our presence, so that we can be a pull for Centenary as well as for Shreveport."
