Business Operations

The KSU Student Media Business Operations Division is the administrative core that supports all three outlets through providing financial stability, marketing assistance, asset control, information management, and further non-content related facets that are required to support The Sentinel, Owl Radio, and The Peak. Business Operations allow the outlets to more effectively produce high-quality content through eliminating the logistical burdens that hold them back. In the future, this division plans to provide Student Media with enough stability to allow us to expand outside of just a newspaper, magazine, and radio station but rather be a media group that circles around multi-model ideology to give students a platform for creation and an audience for their voice.
