KZUM Community Radio Moving to College View!

KZUM Community Radio Plans to Move

Lincoln, NE, December 20, 2011:  KZUM, Nebraska’s only non-profit community radio station, is pleased to announce that it will be moving its on-air studios and business office to 3534 South 48th Street in the spring of 2012.  The new College View facilities will have street level access, ample off street parking, additional space for a second studio, and extra work and meeting areas for the KZUM staff and volunteers.  Situated near bus lines and on one of Lincoln’s major arterial streets will provide easy access and increased visibility for the station.

This is the first move for KZUM since 1988 when they moved into their present location at the Terminal Building in downtown Lincoln.  “We have had a good run in our present location, but the Board feels that the new location will better serve the needs of the station and the Lincoln community as we move forward through the next several years,” says General Manager Cathy Behrns.  “We are optimistic that we will continue to cultivate different types of programming, including broadcasting on the HD frequency.  We are also looking forward to remote broadcasting from across our community.”

“A Facilities Committee has been looking at various possibilities for the past 18 months, including other sites in Lincoln or even staying in the Terminal Building,” says Facilities Committee Chair Jim Smith.   “After much research, study and discussion, the committee, with the endorsement of the Board of Directors, decided on the new location.  We are excited about the potential that comes with the new site.”

Details regarding a capital campaign will be announced in the near future to help with the costs of relocation as well as purchasing new equipment and furnishings.  However, anyone who wishes to make a year–end tax deductible donation to this cause may do so at any time by check, cash or credit card by contacting the KZUM offices at 941 ‘O’ Street, Suite 1025, Lincoln, NE 68508 or calling the business office at 402-474-5086.
