In a move to expand its public service, audience and community engagement, KUT 90.5 FM has entered into an agreement to purchase radio station KXBT 98.9 FM. The new station, KUTX 98.9 FM, will operate as a noncommercial public radio station broadcasting full-time music programming for audiences seeking the Austin music experience. KUT 90.5 FM will become a full-time news and information station. This purchase was approved by the University of Texas System Board of Regents today.
A group of science broadcast journalists from throughout the United States will participate in a Science Literacy Project workshop at The University of Texas at Austin April 6-12 to equip them with knowledge and tools for better reporting of complex science news stories.
