I'd say both, but while the students do have some input, it may be more
a decision of the faculty adviser & the administration than the
students. When I was still at Emerson, there was a bit of a battle
going on about the future of WERS; for example, some in the
administration wanted WERS to play less controversial music, and they
tried several times to cancel rap & hip-hop programming, ostensibly
because of obscene lyrics and complaints from the alumnae (we were never
told who exactly complained). But hiring community members
(professionals) or changing/canceling programs would not be a decision
made by students, as far as I can tell.
