Andrew Fisher

Operations Assistant

Way back in 2015 when he was just a BSU student with a passion for hard work, good people, and the electric excitement that surrounds live broadcasting, Andrew Fisher first managed to win a job here as a Student Operator. Soon, he was also trusted with occasional live hosting, lots of editing and production, and even explorations into brand positioning, station imaging and "stationality" initiatives.

In 2017, Andrew earned a full-time position here at BSPR as an Operations Assistant. In addition to continuing to work on production and programming for all of our stations, he is now helping to spearhead a local "Sonic ID" and news imaging campaign. His personal goal is to get more people excited about Boise State Public Radio by helping to make the organization - and all of our stations - the best they can be in every way. He hopes you can hear the difference.

We are pleased to introduce a new feature you can hear playing each Friday on Boise State Public Radio, called Sonic IDs. "Sonics" are short sound portraits that weave throughout the broadcast day, highlighting the people, places, activities and stories of our region.

 A special one-hour documentary about the history of KBSU, more than 40 years in the making! 

 In 1976, a group of students at Boise State University met with a plan to start a student-run FM radio station, with an ambitious goal: “to bring progressive radio to a town that didn’t have it.” This music-rich, true-life retrospective follows the station’s founders as they retrace the history of KBSU from its rowdy beginnings, through the infamous "Takeover," to the well-earned praise and present-day accolades for the little student station that grew to become Boise State Public Radio.

The Boise All Ages Movement Project is loud, the Reef is back in business, Alefort opens Friday and some bands leave early. Boise State Public Radio News captured a few of the sounds of Treefort Thursday night.

This week, Boise State Public Radio News is capturing the sounds of Treefort. Wednesday night, we met new friends, looked for shelter from the rain and found trouble at the Reef.
