KCOU 88.1 FM Radio Station Gifts Fund

KCOU 88.1 FM is the student-run radio station at the University of Missouri. For more than 40 years of FM and 50 of student radio, KCOU has gained national recognition, providing the voice of 40,000 students and 100,000 Columbia residents. We broadcast 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. KCOU has received regional and national awards for producing extraordinary programming and online content, but we cannot do it without your financial support. We give students the unique opportunity to both produce and host their own radio shows. Since our founding in 1963, KCOU has focused on playing what students want to hear. The station serves as an outlet for the latest in campus and community news, MU sports, podcasts, the newest music from genres and artists often ignored by commercial stations, and most importantly: the voice of Mizzou students. How the money will be used:

  • Keeping our equipment current and in working condition (COMPLETED: New Studio in 2011, New tower equipment in 2016)
  • Providing pay for our Chief Engineer and Exec Staff
  • Scholarship opportunities for Student Radio staff
  • Providing travel budgets for live on-location broadcasts
