AUGUSTANA COLLEGE noncommercial KAUR/SIOUX FALLS, SD has turned its programming over to MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO. The college remains the owner and licensee of the station, but MPR is handling day-to-day programming, operations, and maintenance and has placed its news and talk network on KAUR, with the Classical MPR network already available in the market on KRSD.
"We are pleased that MPR is bringing its quality public news programming to SIOUX FALLS," said college VP/Marketing and Communications BOB PRELOGER. "For some time we have been of the belief that KAUR was an underutilized asset of the College and feel MPR NEWS programming will be the best way for KAUR to contribute to our community."
"We are happy to expand our News service to the SIOUX FALLS area," said SVP/GM TIM ROESLER. "Since we already partner with AUGUSTANA COLLEGE to provide CLASSICAL MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO (KRSD 88.1 FM), it's a natural fit for us to broadcast news to the area."
