You can support KUGR! Learn how!
The Stowell Excellence Fund for KUGR is an endowment fund that directly helps KUGR Cougar College Radio in updating aging equipment and traveling to major sporting events. Most recently, we sent a student-broadcaster to cover the WSU Women’s Soccer team’s trip through the 2019 NCAA tournament, and College Cup.
While KUGR receives funds from ASWSU’s financial committee, over half of that budget goes towards equipment upgrades and licensing of software. This leaves KUGR at a disadvantage for traveling to events – sports and music. That’s where alumni support comes into play.
While KUGR is not in any trouble financially whatsoever, your financial support helps future broadcasters expand their opportunities. Click here to support.
KUGR Cougar College Radio presents up and coming artist Corey Harper February 16 for an intimate concert at Washington State University.
Harper is originally from Vancouver, Washington, but moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career in music. Since then he has toured with artist such as Cody Simpson, Niall Horan, and Justin Bieber.
Harper blends the styles of folk, Americana, country, and blues creating a unique individual style that pays tribute to singer songwriters of the past/present.
In an article about Harper Rolling Stone magazine said, “with vocals that suggest Harper is John Mayer’s breezier fraternal twin, his tunes are a mix of Seventies country-rock touched by Mississippi blues.”
The concert will be held in Studio A located in Jackson Hall on the WSU campus. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. This is a free event and only 65 people will be allowed entrance.
Do you want to improve your radio skills? Or thinking about a career in radio? Then join us this Wednesday, Nov. 29, at 6 p.m. in Murrow Hall 307 for a seminar on Announcing 101.

The event is open to all students. Even if you have no announcing experience this is a great place to get started.
