The WSU student-run radio station KUGR received $6,026 from the Services & Activities Fees board for the 2012-2013 academic year.
The money will go toward an operating and licensing music program, said Chance Chaffin, a freshman communication major and KUGR manager.
The radio station will also be using funds to focus on promotional items such as stickers.
“We just redid our logo and want to finalize it,” Chaffin said.
The group also wants to buy a new broadcast system that runs on wi-fi. Chaffin said it will provide a better and clearer sound to listeners.
Members of KUGR will need to provide periodic reports to the S&A board about how much the radio station is spending and on what.
KUGR's allocation doubled from $3,694 in 2011-2012 to more than $6,000 for 2012-2013. The large increase in budget was because previous KUGR management was not spending their money efficiently so they had to cut down, Chaffin said. However, now that they spent most of the money they can increase back to their original budget.
“(The budget) was totally what I was hoping for,” he said. “We got what we needed and shouldn’t need to request any more.”
