On “2093”, Yeat establishes himself as one of hip-hop’s biggest innovators. Nonetheless, this cannot hide the many flaws and shortcomings of the Portland rapper’s latest album.
The Mission of KRUI
1. The station serves as an educational laboratory for students interested in learning about radio and the broadcast industry.
2. KRUI provides the Iowa City community with a unique programming alternative in music, news, and sports.
KRUI is the second largest student organization at the University of Iowa. Any registered student, faculty or staff member may join the KRUI organization. KRUI employs students, both volunteer and paid, from a wide variety of backgrounds and majors. In addition to the educational aspect, students have the opportunity to meet people and develop interpersonal skills.
Unlike commercial stations, KRUI programs and plays a wide variety of music. We are always searching for lesser known music that you wouldn’t hear anywhere else.
KRUI offers a plethora of specialty shows that feature everything from funk to post-modern classical stylings. KRUI provides a real opportunity for students to be introduced to the radio broadcasting field. Although the University offers courses in radio broadcasting and audio journalism, only KRUI gives all students a chance to go beyond the classroom and experience the live atmosphere of broadcasting while still in school. Exposure to these actual situations allows students to gain confidence in themselves and their skills. Employment at KRUI can be compared to an internship.
The holder of the FCC broadcasting license of KRUI is Student Broadcasters, Incorporated. SBI is a non-profit Iowa corporation charged with overseeing KRUI-FM and hiring KRUI directors each year.
Funding for KRUI comes from mandatory student fees that are allocated by the University of Iowa Student Government, whose members are elected by University of Iowa students. KRUI also generates funding through underwriting. Some additional funding is generated from optional student fees and donations.
KRUI’s yearly budget is completed by the Administrative Director and the General Manager, in consultation with SBI. Any KRUI decision involving financial outlay must be approved by the General Manager.
