KUR INTERVIEWING CANDIDATES FOR PENNSYLVANIA GOVERNOR
KUR is proud to announce that throughout the Spring primary election season, the station will be airing interviews with as many of the candidates for Governor of Pennsylvania as possible. In keeping things totally fair, an invitation has been sent to ALL registered candidates for Governor of Pennsylvania (four Democratic, two Republican [including current Governor Tom Corbett], one Libertarian, & one Green). So far, KUR has had a good response from most of the candidates. One or two have not yet responded despite at least two attempts. Interviews are in the process of either happening now or being set up to happen in the near future. Interviews are individual, non-confrontational, and simple question and answer including questions like background, qualifications, positions, what sets them apart from their competition, how the campaign is going so far, and how to get more information about the candidate. Each interview will average around 15 to 20 minutes, give or take a few minutes in either direction and will air throughout the Spring leading up to the May primary at times clearly advertised here on KUR’s website and on KUR’s award-winning Facebook page which can be found by clicking here.

KUR WINS GOLD ... AGAIN!
Kutztown University Radio has brought home the gold for the 2nd year in a row at the prestigious Intercollegiate Broadcast Society (IBS) Trophy Awards. On Saturday, March 8th, KUR won "Best Use of Social Media!"
KUR has become mildly famous in the past few years for our aggressive social media postings, posting at least 5 to 10 updates per day namely on Facebook and Twitter, ranging from News Alerts (local weather, accidents, closures, stories, etc.), promotional updates on our radio programming, and topics of timely and informative nature to the public including science, sports, and fun news. It's all a part of our realization that operating a media outlet like KUR means not solely focusing on one aspect of it (the radio broadcast itself) but the many other venues any good media outlet must utilize like social media.
All of this has been noticed by the judges and was enough to send us home with the GOLD! Congratulations to the Social Media Team of KUR, Matt Cech, Mitch Lambert, Nicole Zensky, Ryan C Moore, and advisor Mike Regensburger and everyone else at KUR and congratulations to EVERYONE at KUR for making us a finalist for "Best Radio Station at a college of under 10,000 enrollment" and "Best Promotional Event" for last year's Battle of the Bands, in addition to being recognized by IBS for "excellence in college broadcasting."
