Tyler Russell ’11 is making new waves in Laguna Beach — radio waves. He started his “Generational Alt Rock” station KX-FM 93.5, the only local radio station in Laguna Beach.

Russell was recently featured in a Q & A story on Locale Magazine. He has also appeared in the Coastline Pilot, LagunaBeach.com, and the OC Register, among others.

In the video below, Casey McMackin of Irvine Technology Corporation interviews Russell and KX 93.5′s Rudy Gardner, director of development.

Russell grew up in Tucson, but Orange County started to feel like home during his time at Chapman University. He designed his own degree in multimedia journalism, and worked for Chapman Radio first as an on-air personality and then as general manager.
