KNTU: Jazz radio – alive and well
Keep your radio tuned to 88.1 FM – KNTU (if you don’t already have it set). Or for your listening pleasure as you travel this blog’s many pages and posts, click here: http://www.kntu.com/stream/live/player.html for KNTU jazzy online stream.
* KNTU is licensed to the University of North Texas and is on the air 24 hours, every day of the year, broadcasting with 100,000 watts at 88.1 FM.
The station’s format is primarily jazz, but also includes Tejano and classical music programming Saturday and Sunday mornings, respectively. KNTU also offers educational and special interest programs, including news, sports, locally produced information/issues programs, and features.
KNTU’s purpose is essentially three-fold:
To serve the public interest with news, public affairs, and entertainment programming for the McKinney, Denton, Dallas-Fort Worth area.
To provide news and information of community interest about the University of North Texas.
To provide an industry-standards environment in which students learn about radio broadcasting.
KNTU’s staff is mostly volunteer since the station offers an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable broadcast experience in a variety of areas, including programming and production, news and sports announcing, sales and development, and station administration.
All UNT students are eligible to work at KNTU. The studios are in the Radio/TV/Film & Performing Arts Building on the University of North Texas / Denton campus.
To support this cool National Public Radio Station, basic weekly support opportunities are available for as little as $60 per week.
