🚨ANNOUNCEMENT🚨
Due to recent rulings from UI Student Life this past week, we can no longer have DJs doing their shows in-studio as previously planned. We are currently working on remote ways to get DJs and staffers involved on-air.

Our other departments such as online content and music will also continue as planned in a virtual setting. We will be hosting recruitment meetings in the coming weeks for radio and beyond ✨ We hope to see everyone there!

Today, we are celebrating the belated 36th anniversary of the first broadcast under our current call letters!

KRUI has been part of countless people's lives on and off campus since 1952! Know we're currently automated on air and you can stream using the link in our bio!

Hey, listeners!

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I regret to let you all know that the t-shirt orders are cancelled (for now). We figure it’s for the best during these hard times to cancel the order, because we need to prioritize ourselves and our communities and reduce one potential means of catching COVID-19. We’re disappointed, but we plan to relaunch them whenever University of Iowa classes are back in session for ease of distribution. All purchasers will be fully refunded within one to two business days.

If anyone has any questions or anyone who purchased the shirts has any issues with repayment from Custom Ink, please contact me via my email, [email protected] and we’ll make sure everything’s fine and getting taken care of.

Thank you all, and please stay safe!
