Interested in joining KUR (Kutztown University Radio)?
If you're already a current or accepted student, faculty, or staff of KU, you can join KUR and be trained to have your own radio show or help behind-the-scenes in the exciting world of radio! Zero experience is required! We will train you! Weekly in-person member meetings are held in MSU 250 (The President's Room)** every Tuesday at 11 a.m.* and continuing every Tuesday throughout the semester, except for Sept. 21 and Oct. 19. Meetings those two days will either be held by Zoom or you'll be given a reprieve from a meeting those two days. In addition, please join our internal "KUR Members Page" on Facebook and we'll be sure to welcome you to the KUR family and get you more information! Also, please sign into your Engage platform and search for and join "Kutztown University Radio." And, while not required, we encourage you to e-mail us at email@example.com and introduce yourself and let us know about your interest in joining KUR! We can't wait to have you aboard!
*Note: Tuesdays at 11 a.m. are the FREE HOUR meaning no classes are held anywhere on campus, which should make your attendance at our meeting all the easier for you. Also, please be sure to wear a mask to all meetings, as per the campus masking protocol update sent to your campus e-mail this past Aug. 8th.
**Note: MSU 250 (The President's Room) can be found by positioning yourself at the big wall full of TV screens in the hallway outside of the MSU Bear's Dean (Starbucks), and going through the doorway that is just to the right of that wall of screens. After you go through those double doors, MSU 250 will be right in front of you.
KUR podcasts some of our best programming!
KUR realizes that in this day and age, folks listen to podcasts almost as much as live "broadcasts." As such, much of KUR's talk programming is now available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts & a healthy sampling of our music programming is on Mixcloud! Simply go to Spotify or Apple Podcasts and search for "Kutztown University Radio." In addition, KUR has a YouTube account where some of our older content is hosted. You can access KUR's "YouTube" channel by clicking on the "Podcasts" link in the upper left of this page. Click on "Podcasts" on the left side of this page for more details.
If you're not following us on social media, you're missing almost everything.
Following along with our "Schedule" is fine, but without following us on social media, you're missing out on special show announcements, special impromptu programming, and so much more. Unless you listen to KUR 24/7 (which everyone should, but we understand the impracticality *grin*), how are you going to know when KUR airs a special, last-minute program? Plus, KUR's social media is known for local breaking news and other community announcements. It's the reason why KUR won "Best Use of Social Media" at the Intercollegiate Broadcasting convention in 2014 and was an immediate finalist in the same category this year. "LIKE" the "Kutztown University Radio" Facebook page now and make sure to add us to your "Notifications" or at the very least, frequently "LIKE" or "SHARE" our posts so that Facebook keeps them coming to you. In addition, we're on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat, as well! Just click on the little icons a little up and to the left of here and join those venues, as well!
As a part-15 station (see F.A.Q.'s for details), KUR is not required to maintain a public file. Wanting to operate as closely to a non-part-15 station as possible, however, we gladly maintain one. A radio station public file details what said radio station airs and does in the community interest, along with public input. You can access ours by clicking here.
