Former Rice University Radio Frequency Sold to Christian Broadcaster
And, somewhat college radio-related, Rice University’s old KTRU-FM frequency, 91.7 FM, whose license was sold to University of Houston (after much protest from KTRU supporters), has been sold again. Houston Public Media reports that the license sale (which has been in the works since at least last summer) for the fledgling classical radio station (now known as KUHA) has been finalized. The station was sold to Christian radio station KSBJ. Meanwhile, student radio continues at Rice University station KTRU Rice Radio both online and over the station’s new low power FM (LPFM) channel KBLT-LP at 96.1 FM in Houston, Texas.
