Updated: FCC Ratifies Sale of KUSF License, Despite Violations

After a year and a half of wrangling , the FCC has finally upheld the license transfer of 90.3 FM from the University of San Francisco to Classical Public Radio Network. The decision was a final coup de grace to fans of KUSF, the college radio station that used to broadcast from 90.3 but was relegated to an internet stream following the sale. Fans launched a long and passionate crusade to keep the popular station from going moribund, ultimately enlisting help from a wide swath of Bay Area terrestrial radio listeners, and from the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Their fight was symbolic of the movement to preserve college radio at large, even though it ended in disenchantment.
