PACIFICA RADIO noncommercial Variety KPFT/HOUSTON is offering airtime on its HD2 subchannel to personalities about to be displaced by the sale of RICE UNIVERSITY noncommercial Alternative KTRU to the UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON, which plans to flip KTRU to Classical as KUHC.
In an open letter from GM DUANE BRADLEY and PD ERNESTO AGUILAR, KPFT tells the KTRU staff, "KPFT is preparing to relaunch its HD2 alternate channel broadcast, probably in late SEPTEMBER. More accessible than web radio, HD Radio is an open frontier in which KPFT is charting a new course. You would have full autonomy to program, and you wouldn't have the fund drive pressures your KPFT counterparts do on FM and HD1. We would like you to be part of this relaunch.
"KPFT's staff recognize you have unique talents and we genuinely want you to be part of HOUSTON's first and, possibly, last community radio outlet. HOUSTON's music and cultural scenes need you."
