Did you know KUAC has been programming and broadcasting 3 HD stations for over a year? KUAC FM/HD is the traditional KUAC FM broadcast. KUAC2 is an HD channel featuring contemporary music and information programs. KUAC3 is an HD channel featuring extended hours of classical music, BBC News and information programs.
As Wits moves into the Saturday morning schedule on KUAC FM, it is being replaced with Live Wire! a weekly one-hour variety show with a modern twist. Live Wire! will air at noon on Saturdays on KUAC2. More about Live Wire! here. Additionally, NPR is ending production of Tell Me More. KUAC will replace Tell Me More on KUAC2 with As it Happens, Monday-Friday 11 p.m.-12 a.m. More information about As it Happens available here.
Also on KUAC2, an hour of XPonential Radio from 9 p.m.-10 p.m. will be replaced with To the Point. If you are an avid KUAC2 listener, you’ll remember that The Story with Dick Gordon was retired by APM (American Public Media) last October. This program was replaced with XPonential Radio until a suitable replacement could be found. We believe we’ve found a fantastic new program that will entertain and inform listeners. More information about To the Point can be found here.
