Kutztown University Radio (KUR)


KUR is changing webstreaming providers for the first time in close to a decade. Our long provider "Live 365" is going out of business due to higher copyright royalty rates and that left us to find a new one. Thanks to good negotiation by collegiate broadcast representatives like IBS and CBI, our royalty rates are NOT going up which is a huge sigh of relief BUT we had to change streaming providers which means a new link to click on if you listen on your computer and have the old "Live 365" one bookmarked. But this also has equated to IMPROVEMENT because while doing this, we split our stream into two feeds ... a LOW bandwidth one if you're listening on a crowded school network or a slower 3G cellphone, and a HIGH bandwidth 256 kbps one if you're listening on your home computer or hooked up to your home stereo and want to hear audio quality even better than what FM radio offers. Cool huh? The new streams are active TODAY. The old "Live 365" one will remain active until January 31st and will then be turned off. If you listen on "TuneIn" or "AudioNow," you shouldn't have to change anything. Both of those companies have been notified and have flipped streams. To listen to KUR on the new stream, go to the LEFT panel of this homepage that's in white print on what looks like red bricks, click "Listen to KUR" under the yellow "Kutztown University Radio." Instructions are right there. The OLD link on the right side of the page, the one that is in green, white, and black and says "Radio Services ... Listen Live!" is the old Live 365 stream which is still active but will go dark on January 31st. On that day, that green, white, and black box will go away. We want to hear about your listening experience on our new stream.

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.


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 announcments. 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.
