FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KRCU 90.9 FM OFFERS LIVE ONLINE BROADCASTING

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Dec. 13, 2002 - KRCU 90.0 FM listeners now have the opportunity to listen live to the station on their computers. The Southeast Missouri State University public radio station began streaming their signal on the Internet Dec. 6.

"We're really excited to offer this to our listeners," said Danny Woods, KRCU general manager. "This is a great outreach tool, not only for the station, but for the University as well. The Web stream will expand the reach of the University's message and bring cultural opportunities and programming to people who can't normally get our signal, but can now listen on their computer. Now anyone with an Internet connection and RealPlayer software can listen to the KRCU signal from anywhere in the world," he said.

Woods also noted that while Internet streaming is new to KRCU, some public radio stations are actually turning off their Web streams. "There is a lot of paperwork involved with the securing of rights to broadcast shows, and there are still questions about fees that may be imposed by producers and program distributors in the future. In addition, there are reporting requirements involved to comply with licensing agreements."

KRCU will provide the service as long as it can afford to do so, Woods said. Currently, KRCU does not have to pay any additional fees, which are based in part on station staff size.

To access KRCU's signal on the Internet, visit the station's Web site at http://www.krcu.org and click on the "Listen Live" link in the top right corner of the page.
