May 24, 2024 | Beverley Golden

The University of Texas at Tyler College of Arts and Sciences announced today that KVUT 99.7 FM will cease operations at 5 p.m. today.

“This move aligns with our core mission and allows us to reinvest in our academic programming, offering more educational opportunities to students, particularly in our Department of Communication,” UT Tyler College of Arts and Sciences Dean Neil Gray said. “I want to thank the KVUT team, donors and listeners for their support.”

UT Tyler offers a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science in communication studies and a Master of Arts in communication.

“Reinvesting in our students is crucial for fostering the next generation of communicators, journalists and media professionals,” Gray said. “By reallocating resources, we can enhance our curriculum, provide cutting-edge technology and create hands-on learning experiences that prepare our students for the rapidly evolving media landscape.”

With a mission to improve educational and health care outcomes for East Texas and beyond, UT Tyler offers more than 90 undergraduate and graduate programs to 10,000 students. UT Tyler recently merged with The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler (now known as UT Tyler Health Science Center). Through its alignment with UT Tyler Health Science Center (HSC) and UT Health East Texas, UT Tyler has unified these entities to serve Texas with quality education, cutting-edge research and excellent patient care. Classified by Carnegie as a doctoral research institution and by U.S. News & World Report as a na􀆟onal university, UT Tyler has campuses in Tyler, Longview, Palestine and Houston.
