Radio X

Set in a fast-paced and high-energy environment, NSU's Radio X is a unique non-commercial student-managed radio station that broadcasts live from 6:00 p.m. to midnight to the tri-county area on 88.5 FM. You can also catch us 24/7 online. Just visit Radio X to stream it live. Radio X's state-of-the-art studio is housed on NSU’s main campus, on the first floor of the Rosenthal Student Center.

Radio X was started in August 1990 by a group of ambitious students determined to bring and official college radio station to the South Florida scene. It began as a cable-based station broadcasting solely to students residing on campus. Today Radio X reaches far beyond the boundaries of NSU, and includes Broward and portions of West Palm Beach and Dade counties. According to Arbitron, Radio X at 88.5 FM draws 1 percent of local listeners at any given time. And thanks to 24-hour Web streaming their reach now expands to other cities and countries.

Radio X is always looking for outgoing and creative students to become a part of our team. Students who think they have what it takes can apply for one of our staff positions, on air personality spots or gain hands-on experience as an intern by completing one of our applications. Applications are available online at Radio X Jobs or pick one up at our studio in the Rosenthal Student Center, Room 140.

  • broadcast on a digital system
  • become an on-air personality
  • host their own weekly show
