The UNIVERSITY OF THE PACIFIC is selling noncommercial KUOP/STOCKTON to CAPITAL PUBLIC RADIO for an undisclosed price. CPR, based in SACRAMENTO, has been managing KUOP for the last six years, relaying KXJZ/SACRAMENTO.
CPR President/GM RICK EYTCHESON says, “We are extremely pleased to reach this agreement to solidify our continued service to the STOCKTON and MODESTO communities. The audience and membership of KUOP have grown in each of the six-plus years in which we have operated the station. The community support for our programming has been very gratifying. The economies of scale afforded by operating multiple stations in this area contribute to the strength of the enterprise and high-quality programming investments for all of our stations and markets.”
