Here is a basic timeline about University of Northern Colorado Student Radio.
Becomes Chartered Organization
KSRX Chartered as a student organization. We begin where KRSS left off and purchase all the equipment needed to begin broadcasting on cable to the UNC campus.
Begins Broadcasting on Cable
KSRX begins broadcasting on cable at 99.9 FM from a very small basement room in the Davis House. The Marcus Garvey Cultural Center is gracious enough to provide this room to us free of charge.

Our first website debuts, providing us with a new way to reach the students of UNC!

Another Way to Listen
Channel 3 becomes just another way to listen to UNC Student Radio
UNC Student Radio applies for a Low-Power FM License to the FCC
A New Generation
After a long dry spell, the Radio Station heads through a renaissance. Only a few people worked at the station at this time, and they were about to leave UNC. The next generation of UNCSR comes about with the managment of Witten Hoebel and Colin Hardesty.
Fall 2004-Spring 2005
Radio Station Stays Alive
The Station becomes alive again through the will of student volunteers, keeping UNCSR on the map, especially in regards to the Student Representative Council. Witten Hoebel resides as General Manager.
Fall 2005-Spring 2006
FM Broadcast Lost
The FM broadcast becomes officially lost due to complications within the filing process. The internet broadcast reaches various buildings on campus. The TV slide show continues on Channel 3 in the dorms. Colin Hardesty resides as General Manager.
New Sound Board
Radio Station buys a new sound board.
New Generation of Management
UNC Student Radio is almost disbanded due to various circumstances. A new generation of managment ends up taking over station, bringing a world-wide internet broadcast. Chris Hansen resides as General Manager.
Back on Top
Sam Wood becomes General Manager and prioritizes UNCSR's presence on the university campus. Station staff produce remotes and deejay events across UNC, resulting in a sizable leap in student involvement and live broadcasting, as well as a budget boost that affords us new equipment, concert swag, and a van.
Programming during this era ranges from student council meetings to UNC Bear football pre-shows to the arrival of Dave's Gone By, an eclectic mix of humor, music, and celebrity guests.
Dylan Kountz, followed by Jason Stroh, serve as the station's General Managers.
Jan. 26, 2018
Owing to university-wide financial belt-tightening, referred to by outgoing UNC President Kay Norton as "sustainable cost savings," all operations at UNC Student Radio are suspended for an indefinite period.
Twenty-two years? Not a bad run.
The Marcus Garvey Cultural Center has provided the radio station with space in the basement of the Davis House. We continually wish to show our support for all the cultural centers on campus, but the Marcus Garvey Center will never be unappreciated in regards to the station.
