University of Missouri Station KCOU Faces Uncertain Future

An article today discusses a campaign by DJs at KCOU to save their station from possible extinction.

The station is asking that the school consider providing these funds so that the station can continue to broadcast. You can learn more about the project to "save KCOU" on the Save KCOU website.
