In the early 1980s, the station was programmed by Program Director Willis Parker. The General Manager was LaRue Turner, who was also WCSU-FM's Chief Engineer. Dr. Fuad Suleiman was the Administrator responsible for the Telecommunications function at CSU. A small corps of full-time staff and CSU students operated the station 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The station offered music, NPR (National Public Radio) news and other syndicated content; it also provided a handful of station-generated original programming, including hour-long local and state-oriented news/public-affairs shows, and a live, nightly talk show, called "At Issue". From time-to-time, the station broadcast convocation speakers and CSU athletic events as well as sending on-air staff into the community for remote broadcasts (such as at the Greene County Fair).
