The radio station begins broadcasting from the Mechanic Arts Building, thanks to financial support from the Agricultural Extension Service, the Associated Students, and the Pullman Chamber of Commerce.
Known today as KWSU, the station’s founding goals remain in place:
- To provide information and cultural service to a wide area of population
- To draw on the expertise of the faculty and present their findings
- To provide a vehicle for further research in broadcasting
- To train young people in the use, operation, and “human service” of radio
The station is one of the oldest and largest university-owned radio stations in the country.
