A Southeastern Louisiana University communications 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 from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Thursdays and Fridays. Fleig takes over for Rosa Dunn, who recently retired after hosting the show for 30 years, according to a news release.
KSLU is Southeastern’s educational public radio station. Operated on the Southeastern campus, the station’s signal is located at 90.9 FM 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, health care, local ecology, child welfare and social movements.
“I learned many skills from Rosa, and she was a delight to work with,” she said. “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. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (985) 549-5758.
