KRUI relocates to Quadrangle Hall

Displaced from the Iowa Memorial Union by flooding in June, the University of Iowa's student-run radio station, KRUI 89.7 FM, has relocated to a studio in the Quadrangle Residence Hall.

Despite the flooding, KRUI was off the air for less than two hours because the General Manager Nathan Gould and staff members were able to gather the studio equipment and move to higher ground.

The move to Quadrangle is a homecoming of sorts. KRUI's predecessor KWAD first broadcasted from the same location in 1952. The location will allow KRUI to maintain its 24-hour music and sports/news programming to the Iowa City, Coralville, and surrounding communities.

"Iowa City's Sound Alternative," KRUI is a student-run organization, with 11 student directors and more than 200 student volunteers. The station provides a hands-on experience in areas including, journalism, marketing, public relations and engineering. This year KRUI celebrates its 25th year of broadcasting.
