Over the summer, KU Radio purchased two new audio boards to better serve its members in professional radio training. The station replaced its previous Radio System’s 12 channel analog audio radio board with a new Radio Systems Millenium Broadcast 12 Channel Digital Hybrid Console.
This new board has been installed in KUR’s production room. As of this semester, KUR has been approved by Student Government Board to purchase a second board for the on-air room. Installation is scheduled for winter break and the board will be used in the spring 2015 semester.
These new boards come after a two-year effort.
“It goes to show that KUR is always trying to give our students the best learning experience on radio in the real world,” said Station Manager Mike Regensburger. “We’re at the cutting edge of technology and this is a new digital capable board, so not only will it sound better for the listeners, but it will give the students a feel for the most current technology.”
