The Kennesaw State Student Media Board is a standing committee of students, faculty, staff and others that meets as needed during the school year to oversee and advise certain areas of the KSU Student Media operation. The board is primarily advisory in capacity, but does have authority over the selection and, if necessary, dismissal of editors in chief and other top student managers that the board appoints. The board also reviews grievances and complaints and advises student media to ensure that effective service is being given to the student body and to protect the rights of these organizations to operate free of censorship.

The OWL Radio Executive Board was a temporary standing committee that worked closely with the station as directed by the Student Media Board. Unlike the SMB, it focused only on OWL Radio, deemed necessary through its beginning in 2007.

The Owl Radio Executive Board included the Student Media adviser, faculty & staff representation, and all station student directors. The Exec Board was dissolved in 2013 and its responsibilities reverted back to the SMB. For information about these boards and meetings, contact Ed Bonza, 770-423-6280 or ebonza@kennesaw.edu.
