Tyler, TX: KVUT-FM sadly pulls the plug

Recommended Posts

After almost 3 years, KVUT decided to call it a day on May 24 (last Friday evening).  In local media articles posted online, no real reason was given for the move, but it was most likely a financial decision.  By the tone of the quotes from UT-Tyler, it sounds like the university was the primary funder of KVUT, and not as much from listeners.  The station's website and its content is already gone, and trying to click the website now gets a redirect to UT-Tyler's main website.  With the loss of KVUT, it means the loss of a job for longtime TV newsman Mike Landess, who had been doing newsbits and longform interviews of local notables for the station.  No word yet on what will happen to the 99.7 frequency and license.
