KTRU Has One More Week On The FM Dial (UPDATED)

UPDATE (3:06 p.m.): A reader just emailed Rocks Off and says KTRU staff was just informed the station is going off the FM airwaves at 6 a.m. next Thursday, April 28.

A little earlier, Rocks Off started hearing rumors that this evening would be Rice University student station KTRU's last night on the air at 91.7 FM, before ownership changes hands to the University of Houston and the station is rebranded KUHC. The FCC approved the controversial nearly $10 million sale last Friday.

Not true, says outgoing station manager and DJ director Joey Yang. KTRU has one more week on the FM dial.

Yang promised further details on his show, which airs at 3 p.m. today. Besides regular old FM (for another week), KTRU is available online at, on KPFT's HD-2 channel and through its iPhone app.
