The UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA is changing the name of its broadcasting division from KUAT COMMUNICATIONS GROUP to ARIZONA PUBLIC MEDIA, effective MONDAY. The ARIZONA DAILY STAR reports that the change is being made to reflect the fact that the organization owns stations that do not carry the KUAT calls. Along with the name change, the school is redesigning its website and launching a new membership magazine, "PREVIEW."
The school owns noncommercial Classical KUAT-F and News-Talk KUAZ-A-F and PBS affiliates KUAT-TV-DT and KUAS-TV-DT/TUCSON as well as the KUAT MULTIMEDIA educational programming production division.
