SPECIAL COMMUNITY-INTEREST PROGRAMMING ... WEEK OF DEC. 1st

Tune in Tuesday, December 2nd for KUR's premier campus and community issues talk show "Kutztown Live" with your host Stephen Maugeri. Stephen has a powerhouse show lined up. Later in the week, don't miss another inspiring edition of "The People Chronicles" on Thursday, December 4th at 11:30 a.m., followed at 1 p.m. by "This Way Out," the international gay/lesbian radio magazine and "Fifty One Percent" at 1:30, the women's issues magazine. KUR is your caring community radio station, airing programs that corporate radio would never think about giving any time.

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, KUR now has a YouTube account where we podcast some of our latest and greatest broadcasts/interviews/features. You can access KUR's "YouTube" channel by clicking on the "Podcasts" link in the upper left of this page.

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."
