NKU sells public radio station, students mourn

On Tuesday, NKU’s Board of Regents announced its decision to sell WKNU, the college’s public radio station, to the Bible Broadcasting Corporation for $1.9 million.

NKU President, Geoffrey Mearns, said that the Board could no longer justify spending student tuition money and state funds on the radio’s operations. Despite this explanation, students across the campus have expressed disappointment in the school’s decision.

WKNU will still operate under its college-given name, and it will stay on air until the approval process is complete. Approximately 20 full and part-time employees will be affected by the change.
