Seton Hall radio picks new format for station





NEW JERSEY — A campus radio station at Seton Hall University changed its music format on Jan. 2 to comply with administrators' demands to alter its programming.

\n

WSOU ended 15 years of hard rock formatting and picked up what the station has termed modern eclectic rock, which "encompasses all music under the rock umbrella," music director Khaled Elsebai said.

\n

"We chose this format," Elsebai said, "because we felt it was the best format that would make the university happy and maintain the largest [portion] of our audience."

\n

Administrators claimed offensive lyrics in hard rock songs were inconsistent with the mission of the faith-based university.
