Podcast #159 – Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes, in College Radio and Podcasting

Programming changes draw attention at one college station, while another might be close to the auction block, and a new San Francisco LPFM steps in to the spiritual space left behind by a beloved departed station. Team that with some big changes in the podcasting industry, and we’ve got a full episode.

After hearing from many listeners, Jennifer checks in with UNLV station KUNV. It’s a station we’ve been keeping up with since a takeover was averted back in 2015. The station recently had some staff and programming changes, but we find that students are still involved. Jennifer also reports on University of Evansville’s WUEV, which students and alums are concerned might go up for sale. And there’s happy news from San Francisco, where new community station KXSF-LP just launched to fill the void left behind when KUSF left the airwaves in 2011.

Paul has news about the the exit of a major podcast network, but also words of encouragement for all the current and would-be community podcasters: there’s so much room for podcasting to grow, and somewhere there’s a listener who wants to hear the show you want to make.
