WRUR WXXI Partnership
"WRUR-FM is a partnership of the University of Rochester and WXXI Public Broadcasting. The station is committed to providing news and music programming that appeals to a diverse audience of listeners. WRUR offers educational opportunities to University of Rochester students, while teaching them accountability and responsibility. The program service is community focused and listener driven, and supports the mission and vision of both the University of Rochester and WXXI Public Broadcasting Council. ...
Throughout the workday, you can tune in to our unique sound blending rock, soul, blues and folk. Our playlist mingles classic tunes with the latest in adult alternative music. Stay up-to date with NPR news every weekday, with Morning Edition from 5-9am and All Things Considered from 4-6pm. Plus, check out WRUR's student DJs and their niche programming every weeknight starting at 8pm, as well as specialty programming early evening and on the weekends" 1
A contributor noted:
The Partnership was deemed by some students and local residents as more of a "takeover" than a happy partnership. The main logic behind the criticism was that adults dominate all the professional stations, and some independent space should be left exclusively for students to run. Partnership advocates countered that the students had not put out a consistent product.
However, others have looked at the partnership as blessing, due to the added year round programming, better signal coverage with the transmitter site moving to Pinnacle Hill, and the new educational opportunities for students.

2011-11-11 14:04:15 i have to say that on 11/11/11 , i found no phone number listed at the wrur.org page, other than a sponsorship contact. In a bit of an overstatement, this is nearly criminal. If they don't want phone calls, fine, put a note on the 'about' page: "no phone calls accepted". Of course, any listener knows they accept calls, but, come on... this is the second millenium, the internet is beyond teen years... get the basics right.... oh, and if you offer a link to search playlists, please make sure it is correctly coded so that it returns some data, any data... rather than being a supreme time waster and pure aggravation stoker. holy budda.
— addendum— I did try the numbers here, which I don't doubt are accurate..... rings forever, no message picks up to at least say, "you reached wrur, sorry we cannot answer your call or take a message"... come on, ppl, minimal stuff, alexander bell could have set this up for you decades ago, this is old technology, please at least get that right. All this said, wrur is one of the main listenable stations in town, and on the net... keep up the good programming... Friday nights are big city, big time music listening! Sunday nights, as well, go RuthE! morning show is good , too. —
— Finally, i know this is not the place to post a coding comment about the rocwiki site, and i give a break to a totally volunteer organization like this, but i am not finding the italics method are functioning using double quotes.... perhaps it is my old safari, running on an old mac ppc. i tried a little bit of html like using p's and i's, not finding they are recognized either, but been ages since i tried those anywherecrank
