Public Media Company is pleased to have assisted CapRadio and HSU in reaching this positive outcome for listeners on the North Coast.
Capital Public Radio (CapRadio) has announced that it has signed a Management and Programming Agreement with Humboldt State University (HSU) to manage KHSU and the other non-commercial NPR-member stations licensed to the University. The collaborative agreement is effective April 1; it was formally approved in late February after months of study and discussion.
CapRadio entered into a similar agreement with North State Public Radio (NSPR) in October 2020. Under the new agreement with HSU, the FCC-issued broadcast licenses for the KHSU stations will be retained by the University, while CapRadio and Chico-based NSPR will be responsible for daily operations and programming in service to North Coast audiences. Like KHSU, all of the stations that are part of this agreement are affiliated with a campus of the California State University.
The new agreement ensures that high-quality national and state programming for the North Coast will continue and donations from the region will be used to support the KHSU stations.
