In an effort to not only better cover the issues important to us, but to also connect with people interested in news, sports, entertainment, local, state and national issues and other stuff, KACU is now on wordpress.
KACU is the public radio station located in Abilene, Tx on the campus of Abilene Christian University. We are housed in the Don Morris Building on the 1st floor. Our bloggers are both students who work for the station as well as our professional staff members.
Founded as a student radio station in 1955, KACU was originally housed in McKinsey Dorm on the ACU campus until 1986 when it became an official public radio station on June 2nd. Since then, 89.7 KACU FM Abilene Public Radio has continued to be the source for public radio in West Texas, the source for NPR news and programming, A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, the BBC Worldservice, as well as a myriad of great music programs like Performance Today, Beale Street Caravan, Jazzset, and others. KACU is also the home of locally produced shows like Eye On Entertainment, The News @ Noon, The Poet’s Corner, Nightsounds, All That Jazz and the syndicated variety music program The Appetizer.
