KWMU moving to Grand Center

St. Louis' National Public Radio affiliate KWMU (90.7 FM) will move from the campus of the University of Missouri - St. Louis to the Grand Center arts and entertainment district in midtown, according to a story in yesterday's St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The radio station is known to St. Louis jazz fans as the home of Dennis Owsley's weekly program Jazz Unlimited, which is broadcast from 9:00 p.m. to midnight on Sundays. The story says UMSL will build a three-level, 27,000 square foot facility next to the KETC building on Olive at a cost of around $7 million that will contain the new offices and studios for KWMU as well as space for other university programs.
