The media industry is in the midst of fundamental change, challenging KLRU to evolve — to better fulfill our mission of community engagement and impact, to deliver essential media that matters, and to expand our reach and relevance.
In 2020, we’re addressing that challenge more boldly than ever before.
And we’re asking for your partnership in doing so.
We’re not only relocating — we’re reimagining. A new building. A new approach. An ambitious new partnership.
Our future home — to be built with your help and community support — is the 45,000 square foot Austin Media Center at Austin Community College Highland Campus.
Beyond retooling for the changing landscape of what “broadcasting” and “media” means, KLRU will be more visible, more accessible, more flexible. KLRU is an essential resource for Central Texas, evolving along with our changing community and media industry. With this move, KLRU begins a new and deep collaboration with ACC, offering previously unimagined opportunities for both organizations:
- Giving the next generation of digital storytellers a robust, innovative platform, focused intensely on community and positive solutions
- Kickstarting creativity, pairing learners with instructors and professionals
- Creating a new home for community events and gatherings, helping ACC and KLRU dramatically enhance their role and leadership in the public space
- Working together to tell Austin’s story to the world, and vastly expanding the information delivered to Central Texans
Will you come with us as we move? Forward.
