KSDP Radio’s GM Office: The General Manager’s office is located just off to the side of the main office in direct view of the front door. The office has been upgraded with Duck’s Unlimited prints, an improved filing shelf, new office furniture and a fresh coat of paint.
KSDP Radio’s On-Air Studio: The station’s on-air studio was entirely rearranged and updated in spring 2010. The studio furniture was turned ninety degrees and a step running across the studio was removed to make space. The final product is a studio in which the host and one, or even two guests are able to sit facing each other while on mic. The renovation also saw the addition of a new D-75-12 Audioarts radio console from Wheatstone, as well as the introduction of microphone and monitor arms from Yellow Technology. A new commercial glass door complete with a soundproofing gel coat also replaced the standard interior, wood door to the studio.
