KPSU, SFC disagree over $16,000 broadcasting system

Just weeks before fall term began, the student-run radio station KPSU and the Student Fee Committee clashed over the radio station’s request for $16,169 to replace a defunct announcement system with state-of-the-art equipment called Google Automation. Currently, KPSU operates using a 10-year-old demo copy of a program called Automix to program its on-air time slots, and uses an aging announcement, or instant replay (IRP) system, that houses all of the station’s public service announcements, underwriting contracts and informational legal IDs.
