On November 12, PLU announced its intent to sell KPLU to KUOW and the University of Washington. If this sale succeeds, our region will lose yet another source for local news along with a premium jazz service that reaches listeners worldwide. KPLU as you know it would no longer exist. Thanks to overwhelming public support after the announcement, a newly formed organization, Friends of 88-5 FM, now has the opportunity to make an offer for the station. In order to make a competing bid and save the KPLU you know and love, the community needs to raise $7 million by June 30, 2016. Find out more about the campaign or make your donation to Save KPLU today.
Regardless of the outcome of the Save KPLU campaign, KPLU will remain in operation during the fundraising process and/or through final approval of the sale by the Federal Communication Commission.
