Public Radio Capital has agreed to acquire Ketchum, Okla. commercial station KGND(FM). Oklahoma State University's non-commercial station KOSU would program the station with news, specialty programs and classical music.
PRC extends public radio's reach through partnerships with educational institutions and public broadcasters.
"The second station provides the opportunity to improve the signal strength into the major metro areas as well as many rural areas not served before by public radio or KOSU," said KOSU GM Craig Beeby.
The sale is expected to close during Q4 pending regulatory approval. KOSU will begin non-commercial programming after PRC completes financing for the purchase.
