There’s a new radio station in the Coachella Valley – PAWS Radio – the first radio station produced by staff and students at Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert Campus.
Students at the Palm Desert Campus lead the programming each weekday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m., playing alternative rock and popular hits. The station then offers a pure jazz format beginning at 2 p.m. and running all afternoon, all night and all weekend long - the only station in the Coachella Valley to do so. Local artists will be featured as well, and the station will broadcast live from many campus and local music events. A broadcast news team is being formed to focus on daily newscasts and interviews, starting in September.
Programming at all hours is saturated with news and information about cultural, intellectual and academic offerings at the Palm Desert Campus, in the city of Palm Desert and the entire Coachella Valley region.
