Why Does UF Want A Gainesville FM Translator?


The city of Gainesville, Fla., is the heart of Gator Country, as it is the home of the main campus of the University of Florida.

Here, UF already has an established broadcast presence thanks to 100kw Class C1 giant NPR member station WUFT-FM 89.1. In February, it added what is today WJUF-FM in Inverness, Fla., as a broadcast partner.

Now, thanks to a deal with a broadcast ministry shedding its properties, WUFT is getting another signal primarily serving Gainesville.
