Antioch University Santa Barbara is excited to announce a partnership with KCRW, Southern California’s flagship NPR affiliate broadcasting in Santa Barbara as KDRW at 88.7 FM.
Under the partnership, KCRW will inhabit space on the AUSB campus in downtown Santa Barbara, which will allow AUSB students – particularly in the Bachelor of Arts program concentrations of Communication & Media and Marketing – to have exposure to and work with a professional media organization to enrich their studies as well as KCRW’s operations.
The partnership between AUSB and KCRW, which began in November, also will lead to collaboration on community events, the first of which will be “Antioch in Conversation: Water – Is Santa Barbara All Dried Up?” on Dec. 12. KCRW’s Warren Olney and a panel of local experts will discuss the state’s historic drought and Santa Barbara’s sustainable future. Tickets to the event, which is also co-sponsored by The Independent, are free and open to the public, but space is limited (RSVP here).
