Save KTRU (91.7 FM)

Rice University is trying to sell KTRU’s frequency (91.7 fm) and transmitter to the University of Houston. This would force KTRU to be an internet-only station. We intend to stop the sale.

This act would kill one of the last sources of local, independent, diverse programming left on Houston airwaves. Negotiations were made in secret specifically to exclude input from Rice students and alumni. Rice students created KTRU from scratch, built it up over 40 years, and now Rice is trying to sell it out from underneath them.
