Sale of KUSF 90.3 FM blasted by Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi 

Members of the Board of Supervisors blasted the University of San Francisco’s decision to sell its radio channel KUSF 90.3 FM to a Los Angeles-based broadcaster.

“What a grave error it was for the University of San Francisco to sell the license of KUSF 90.3 on the dial,” said Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi, who introduced a resolution Tuesday urging the university to rescind the sale. “It’s a travesty that the University of San Francisco did not reach out.”

The resolution could be voted on by the board as early as next week. While it is non-binding, resolutions are used to send a message that can have an impact.

The board “decries the loss of the cultural and community asset,” the resolution says. “[The radio channel] is a public trust and community asset that serves as an extraordinary educational tool, provides access to vital information to those who otherwise won’t have it, and is immensely valuable to the people of San Francisco and integral to the fabric of our city.”
