Station Information

We made a commitment last year to figure out how we're reflecting the diversity of our community in the voices you hear on KUT. We started with a baseline of the first three months of 2018, when we weren't paying attention, to get an idea of the diversity of voices on-air. 

Back in August, we took a look at the diversity of the sources you hear in KUT’s local news coverage. We went through the data on all our sources’ gender, race and ethnicity, and expertise from the first three months of 2018.

Over the past few months, we've been looking at how we’re doing when it comes to reflecting the diversity of the community in our journalism. 

Check Out the New KUT Weekend and Evening Schedules

Dec 9, 2014

KUT is shuffling some of its weekend and late evening programs to bring listeners a fresh mix of the original and innovative public radio Austin’s NPR station is known for.

Beginning Saturday, Dec. 13, KUT’s midday and evening shows will be grouped together to reflect a similar sound, sensibility and personality. Some old favorites will have new start times.

KUT has brought the StoryCorps Mobile Booth to Austin, and from Jan. 5 through Jan. 30, you and a loved one are invited to record your story.

The trailer is parked in front of the Bob Bullock Museum and our second round of reservations filled up in just minutes.  You can get on a wait list for possible cancellations by visiting the StoryCorps reservation website.

KUT is proud to be the Austin home for storytelling shows like “This American Life,” “Snap Judgment” and “The Moth Radio Hour.” These shows enhance daily lives because of the connection that is created between the storyteller and the listener.

Our mission at KUT is to celebrate the power of the human voice – and these shows directly reflect that.

Though its history is short, the legacy of “Texas Standard” already big. “Texas Standard” is the name of the news magazine that will begin daily production early in 2015. However, KUT has already started to air segments produced by “Texas Standard.”
