Backlash erupts day after KUSF announces it is going off the air 

Protests, both physical and online, erupted the day after college radio station KUSF announced it was going off the air.

KUSF employees are planning a protest alongside volunteers at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the University of San Francisco.

The protest is an effort to block the sale of the college radio station to the Classical Public Radio Network for $3.75 million, which still has to go through 30 days of public comment before it can be approved and finalized by the FCC, according to organizers.

Protesters hope to raise $4 million to present as a counter-offer to university officials and then take over the station.

The protest is scheduled to be to be at the University of San Francisco Presentation Theater, located at 2350 Turk St.

In addition, a Facebook page called Help Save KUSF sprang up Thursday, drawing more than 2,000 friends by the early evening.
