Description

The Chronicle of Higher Education looks at controversies surrounding the student-run station of Rice University, KTRU 91.7 FM. The story looks at the station's recent shutdown caused by a conflict in which the university insisted that the KTRU station carry more sports with announcers approved by the athletic department, and students expressed their dissatisfaction with "irreverent announcements." The article follows how the dispute has been resolved, and finds that, in a way, the dispute has strengthened students' positions. "Students talk about artistic vision while university officials talk up responsibility," reports the Chronicle.
