Northern Kentucky University to explore selling WNKU in light of budget cuts - Austin Fast, WCPO

With significant budget cuts looming for higher education across the commonwealth, Northern Kentucky University may join a string of Tri-State universities that have sold off radio stations to balance budgets. NKU President Geoffrey Mearns announced in an email to NKU staff Tuesday afternoon that the university will start looking into selling its WNKU radio station this week. "I want to emphasize that this step is an exploratory one. No decision has been made regarding the future of WNKU,” Mearns wrote. "In these challenging economic times, and as we face the very real prospect of significant funding cuts from the state, it is our responsibility to align our efforts with our core mission: the education of our students.”
