KIOS-FM is part of the OPS Career Center. As part of the Career Center offerings, interested students were transported here each day from all of the Omaha high schools to study radio and television production. The radio students’ projects, including a semi-weekly hour-long jazz program – “Jazz from Studio One” and a monthly five-minute record review, were broadcast on KIOS-FM at various times during the school year. The television students are involved in studio and video productions including public service announcements, commercials, news reports, sporting events and interview segments. These classroom learning experiences exposed students to future broadcast employment possibilities.
