Shaw announced the sale in a news release as part of a plan to overhaul the school’s Department of Mass Communications.
Interim president Paulette Dillard said the sale is part of a plan to "provide a 21st century education for the students who elect to come to Shaw." The investment in the mass communications department is a way for the school "to improve the career possibilities, the educational programs — the things that attract students to our university, because first and foremost, we are a university," said Dillard.
The station’s 88.9 frequency will be transferred to the Educational Media Foundation, a nonprofit organization that operates radio networks specializing in adult contemporary Christian music. Dillard expects FCC approval of the sale to take about 90 days.
Dillard declined to disclose the sale price, but it will be public record once the deal is final.
