Partnership with CapRadio and North State Public Radio

KHSU and Cal Poly Humboldt signed a Public Service Operating Agreement (PSOA) with CapRadio to run the day-to-day operations of the radio station and its network of transmitters. Cal Poly Humboldt retains the FCC-issued broadcast licenses and hired CapRadio with a 10-year management agreement. As part of the PSOA, all funds raised on behalf of KHSU (membership, grants, corporate support) are spent to support the programming and public service. If you have questions about this agreement, please contact us at
