Riot Radio


As one of the first visual radio stations in North America, Riot Radio brings new technology and diverse programming to the campus community, where students can create their own shows.

With the support of staff, dedicated student volunteers are immersed in virtually every aspect of Riot Radio—they make up our roster of on-air hosts, assistant technicians, and street team volunteers.
