HAMMOND – A Southeastern Louisiana University communication senior is taking over
hosting duties for radio station KSLU’s program “Point of View.”
Miranda Fleig of Slidell, winner of last year’s Louisiana Association of Broadcasters scholarship, will host the weekly community interest program,which airs on Thursdays and Fridays from 11–11:30 a.m. Fleig takes over for Rosa Dunn, who recently retired after hosting the show for 30 years.
KSLU is Southeastern’s educational public radio station. Operated on the Southeastern campus, the station’s signal is located at 90.9FM or heard live over the website KSLU.org/. Last year the station was named the No. 2 College Radio Station in the South by the Southeast Journalism Conference.
“I intend to keep a lot of the lighthearted feel of the show that Rosa had,” said Fleig who worked with Dunn for several years helping to engineer the show. “I would also like to discuss issues important to Tangiapahoa Parish, such as unemployment, healthcare, local ecology, child welfare and social movements.
“I learned many skills from Rosa, and she was a delight to work with,” she added. “I always called her the station’s guardian angel.”
“I’m thrilled to have Miranda as the new host of ‘Point of View,’” said KSLU General Manager Todd Delaney. “She’s the perfect person to carry the torch that Rosa lit 30 years ago and bring the program to new heights.”
Fleig said she is interested in feedback from the community, including suggestions for guests and topics. Information can be sent via email to Miranda.Fleig@southeastern.edu or by telephone at 985-549-5758.
