After 16 months, FCC still hasn’t approved KUSF radio deal

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Remember the hubbub after University of San Francisco officials pulled the plug on campus radio station KUSF (locking out on-air personnel with no warning) after quietly agreeing to sell off the station? That was 16 months ago and the FCC still hasn’t approved the deal. That’s most unusual, a former FCC staffer tells The Bay Citizen’s Reyhan Harmanci. It’s also giving hope, justifiably or not, to the old station’s defenders that the deal might yet somehow get undone.

Add: For now the real impact, unfortunately, is on non-profit classical station KDFC and its owner, the University of Southern California, which claims KUSF’s old frequency, 90.3 FM, as part of its classical music radio family. Until the FCC clears the deal, KDFC can’t do on-air fundraisers.
