South Arkansas Community College will launch a new Internet-based radio station, KSAC, at noon on Valentine's Day as part of its performance and media arts program.
The project is an assignment of this spring's Sound Recording class.
Some of the shows will be:
•"Ask the President," with student host Karly Smith of El Dorado. Smith will interview SouthArk president Dr. Barbara Jones about topics relating to the college.
•A show about current events in the El Dorado area, also with Smith as host.
•"This Is South Art," with student host Dixie O'Neal. The show will highlight art events in the El Dorado area.
•A show about music and musicians in the area, with student host Charles Miller.
The station manager is student Nicolas Patterson.
The station will be available at the college's website, www.southark.edu, under the "KSAC" link. All programs will be archived and will be available to listen to at any time.
"We want this to be a tool for the community to get the word out about the good things happening in El Dorado," PMA program director Larry Powell said.
Community organizations will be given the opportunity to participate in KSAC; submit a request with all pertinent information to lpowell@southark.edu.
