KRUA is a Non-commercial educational College radio station in Anchorage, Alaska, broadcasting on the FM band 88.1 and online at kruaradio.org |. The station is operated by students at the University of Alaska Anchorage. It is the only student-run station in Anchorage. Originally designated KMPS in 1987, the station ran off of a small transmitter donated by Augie Hiebert of Northern Television, Inc. KMPS was a carrier current station, and the signal was restricted to telephone lines. This left the signal's range at only a number of target locations such as the on-campus housing complex. The original broadcast schedule was sporadic as the station relied on student volunteer DJ's to host programs on-air. It wasn't until the school year of 1990-91 that the UAA Media Board, along with the local FCC offices and the Anchorage Associated Broadcasters, Inc. began the documentation to create a non-commercial, educational station.
