WKMS Featured on Roundabout U

Murray State University’s Roundabout U focuses on the upcoming presidential election in its latest installment. 

Co-hosts Jim Carter and Sarah Clark talk with staff at WKMS, Murray State’s public radio station, about how they will be stepping up their coverage of the election. WKMS features a varied source of news, information and entertainment on air and on its website.

Carter and Clark also speak with students on the importance of voting and how students who are away from home during the election can vote. Plus, they catch up with student Lindsey Summers from the MSU College Democrats and her counterpart, Nathan McNichols of the Murray State College Republicans, to learn more about their roles in their political organizations and the benefits membership can offer students. 

This episode of Roundabout U airs at various times Oct. 7-13, and is broadcast on KET (Kentucky Educational Television), WSIL and through local cable systems. Specific airing dates and times can be found online at www.roundaboutu.com
