On Monday, October 8, students, faculty, and staff gathered to celebrate the launch of the new Lyon College radio station, KILT. Those attending enjoyed pizza and refreshments as they discussed the success of current shows on the station as well as plans for new ones.
Lyon’s Director of Institutional Research Andrew English played his guitar live on the air during the event.
Junior Miguel Hernandez is thrilled that Lyon has started a radio station. He has plans of participating in a show called “Sad Boi Hour” that will be airing on Wednesdays and Fridays from 7-8 p.m.
“I think it’s really neat that we finally have a radio platform,” said junior Navy Griffin. “I am really excited about it! I think that it’s a great way to have our students’ voices be heard.”
KILT’s faculty advisor, Dr. Radek Szulga, is pleased with all the interest the campus community has shown in KILT so far.
“We have eleven shows right now,” said Szulga. “Some are live, and some are pre-recorded, and everyone is super enthusiastic. We’re having a lot of fun.”
