A formal application for license transfer of Kalamazoo Public School’s WKDS-FM to Western Michigan University was filed October 5 at the FCC.  This follows a meeting held April 30 when the Kalamazoo Public Schools board voted to sell the district’s radio station to Western Michigan University, who presently operate WMUK-FM.

WMUK began operating the station in January of this year and moved its classical music programming (as “WMUK Classical”) to the WKDS frequency while it expanded its news and information programming on the main WMUK frequency.

WMUK is funding the purchase with a $250,000 Irving S. Gilmore Foundation grant, which the station received in November 2019.
