CisternYard Radio

College of Charleston's student radio station

CisternYard Radio (CYR) is Charleston's oldest student-run radio station. Founded in 2001, CisternYard Radio is the area's only music service dedicated to showcasing independent, new artists with an emphasis on local talent. Streaming live 24/7 during the academic year, CYR puts the spotlight on local and regional music.  Volunteer DJs have a one or two hour show once a week where they completely control the content of the radio broadcast.  CYR hosts several annual music events on campus and works with street teams to promote musical events in the Charleston area at venues such as the Music Farm, Charleston Pour House and Charleston Music Hall.  CYR also remote broadcasts from athletic games and other events on campus.
