University of Sioux Falls Media Center
Opened in August 2012, the state-of-the-art Media Center provides an incredible hands-on learning environment for students. The Media Center includes four editing suites using Mac Pro towers; an open editing room with five iMacs; new broadcast studios for KCFS-FM and KCSD-FM; a high definition video studio with dimmable LED lighting; and a control room with a NewTek Tricaster 855 switcher that has live web streaming capability.
The USF Media Studies department produces a 30-minute news program that focuses on news and information about colleges and universities in the region. During its history, the program has had different formats and has been called Sioux Falls Forum, Focus on Sioux Falls and USF Sportsline. The current version, USF College Week, currently streams on the College Week website:
KCFS - 94.5 FM
KCFS - USF's student operated radio station - is geared toward discovery of new music and the appreciation of familiar music. On a daily basis the station pumps out music to the Sioux Falls area that is designed to enlighten, invoke emotions, create thought and relax or stimulate listeners. After all, that should be the purpose of music: to change perceptions and to encourage new ideas.
KCSD - 90.9 FM
KCSD is the campus' public broadcasting station operated by South Dakota Public Broadcasting. Throughout USF's 30-year partnership with SDPB, dozens of students have gained experience and confirmed their major in Media Studies through job shadows and internships with SDPB.
