KUR launches 'Radio For Pets' in 2019.
Kutztown University Radio (KUR) has embarked in a new venture in 2019. Beginning at the turn of the New Year, KUR's daytime format has become 'Radio for Pets', easy listening radio for the relaxation of pets and their humans.
Pet health tips, animal news and the Humane Society Pet of the Week are featured hourly on KUR. Local pet owners can send in photos of their pets to be featured on KUR's social media channels and possibly KUTV. An improved playlist of more than 3,400 easy-going songs spanning seven decades will be featured as KUR's Radio for Pets production. Send your pet photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and KUR may feature the photos on its social media pages and KUTV. Be sure to include your pet's name and where they're listening from! Make a resolution in 2019 for you and your pets to listen to KUR, where we play Billy Joel to Ed Sheeran and Frank Sinatra to Whitney Houston.
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 talk broadcasts/interviews/features. You can access KUR's "YouTube" channel by clicking on the "Podcasts" link in the upper left of this page. In addition, we now podcast many of our music shows, as well, through Mixcloud. You can find that link by clicking on "Podcasts" in the upper left of this page, as well.
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.
