Oscar Carmona Bulletin
By Sarai Henriquez, Staff Reporter
There are many ways for California State University, Dominguez Hills students to get involved on campus, from clubs to rooting for sports teams, but have you ever thought of working with the campus radio station?
KDHR is an internet radio station founded in 2004 by CSUDH students who host their individual podcasts, create advertisements, and commercial content.
If interested, getting involved is as easy as filling out and submitting one of two applications. If you’d like to do your own podcast, fill out a radio/host application. To get a job as an intern, fill out the “student at large” application. Once you fill out an application and choose a time slot, you will get a tour and a run-down how the equipment works.
“I actually found out about KDHR at new student orientation,” Oscar Carmona, junior, said. “I am a film, TV, media major and my passion is music, so I was trying to find where I belonged in Dominguez Hills and then KDHR came my way.
As a film and TV media major, Carmona has already worked at one of the top radio stations in Los Angeles. But even with his experience, he realized he could get something out of KDHR.
“I wanted to continue my career in music and radio at CSUDH, but I wanted to explore a different side of radio, which is why I now host my own show with my own rules,” Carmona said.
He has been part of KDHR for three semesters now and will continue with his show until he graduates. The name of his show is “Pop in with Oscar O,” where he plays Latin music, along with EDM, indie, hip-hop, R&B and pop.
“Pop in with Oscar O” is one out of 29 shows currently playing this spring semester at KDHR.
“Last semester it was at 32 shows, so far this semester we’re at 29 shows, but it is going to change it is going to get higher,” said Adrian Aguilar, KDHR production assistant and senior student majoring in film, TV, and media major.
Aguilar’s job is to schedule all the weekly podcasters every semester and to help them by uploading students’ shows and also help podcasters with the edits of their shows. He has been part of KDHR since May 2019.
Another show that will make its first debut is CSUDH’s The Bulletin with their show called “The Bulletin Sports Report” beginning Feb. 10, 2020. Senior journalism majors Jeremy Gonzalez and Robert Rios will cover everything that deals with all sports going on at CSUDH and professional sports.
“We are super excited to give our sports team the coverage they deserve,” Gonzalez said.
Students can find the list of shows by tuning in 24/7 at KDHR.Net. Toros can also check them on Spotify and Apple Podcast.
