Report: WDUQ For Sale

The PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE reports that DUQUESNE UNIVERSITY has put its noncommercial WDUQ/PITTSBURGH up for sale. The school has owned the station since 1949 and spokeswoman BRIDGET FARE tells the paper that the station has been on the block for several months.
"Over the years, DUQ has evolved into a station that is virtually independent of the university," said FARE. "This could be an opportunity for DUQUESNE to reallocate assets for the enhancement of our educational enterprise and for the station to thrive on its own. We believe that DUQ will be even stronger under ownership that focuses on radio."
