Sign Up For Push Alerts Through The KUT News App
We're discontinuing the alerts you may have been getting through Facebook Messenger. You can keep getting the same alerts through the KUT News app — with a lot more features.
You'll be able to stream KUT 90.5, see our new stories as soon as they're published and see the latest from NPR and Texas Standard.
If you already have the KUT News app but aren't receiving push alerts, go to your phone's or tablet's notification settings to start getting them.
What kind of alerts we send
- Breaking news (Example: Firefighters battling a 50-acre brush fire near I-35 and Onion Creek)
- When severe weather is moving into the Austin area
- Major traffic incidents (Example: Debris from a crash falling on the lower deck of I-35)
- Feature stories from KUT reporters, like our ATXplained project (Example: Why does the top of Austin's tallest building look "unfinished"?)
- Important updates to stories we're following (Example: Here's what you need to know about the toxic algae blooms on Lady Bird Lake)
Don't push it
We promise not to overdo it. We generally send only one or two alerts on weekdays. We also avoid sending an alert too early or too late in the day, unless it's a life-threatening situation.
If it gets overwhelming or you'd like more (or less) of a particular type of alert, let us know.
