Hello Beautiful Listeners.
This summer has felt much longer than it actually was, as I had the chance to watch K-UTE Radio grow within a changing Student Media. Many days have been spent sitting around our conference tables, in our offices, and even in the studio, discussing and debating what the best move is for K-UTE. First we had to decide why we were looking for the best move in the first place. Luckily that was easy – It’s for our listeners and our team. Everything we do is for our listeners and our team.
I’m very happy to be writing to you from our brand new website. It’s much sleeker and more organized than our old one, and our team has put a lot of care into its design. This website is especially great because it allows us to add a brand new part of K-UTE Radio: a platform for Campus Podcasting. Right now we have four great shows to listen to: The Sports Saloon (our Utah Sports show), The Geekwave (our Geek-themed talk show), Brunch with U (a News Commentary show), and The Rostrum (a new show where we interview a different person of interest every week). Be sure to check them out, you can find their full episode lists at any time by clicking their art on the home page or under the “Shows” menu at the top of our website. We’re still working out the kinks on this podcasting thing, so that should be fun for a while. We’ve also tried to set up our website to become a great place to host content that is produced outside of Student Media. If you or your organization is already producing a podcast, send us a message through our fancy new Contact Us page.
We’ll also be bringing you a host of new blog and video content over the next semester, which we’re super excited about. And our Schedule is brand new too! With shows led by a host of excited producers, hosts, and DJs, we really hope that these shows we’ve created will last a long time, so you’ll know that you can listen to Local Music on Crimson Venue everyday from 3-5 for the rest of your time here at the University, and hopefully beyond! And with brand new shows dedicated to Country, Jazz, Latin, and even Broadway Showtunes, we think there’s something for everyone, whether they be DJs with their own taste in music, or listeners with the vast array of tastes that we have on campus.
Now is the best time to get involved with K-UTE. With so many things growing and changing, we want energetic students to get involved in helping us make lasting decisions. If you’ve ever thought it would be fun to DJ your own show, create a podcast about something you’re passionate about, or get experience in the Media Industry, now is your chance. Just hit the “Join Our Team” button on the front page. We look forward to hearing you on air.
Everything we do here at K-UTE, we do with people in mind. We want to tell the stories of this campus, through music, talk, blog, and video. We want to give our staff the opportunities to build something they’ll be proud of. And basically, we want to give the people what they want, as much as we can. Please send us feedback if you have any, and continue to rock out. Go Utes!
