Okay, this really has nothing to do with KUJH, but enough of us pulled double duty to make it meaningful enough to post. Turns out the old KJHK Tower is coming down after the storms.

Lawrence -- Because of damage caused by Sunday’s wind storm, the University of Kansas next week will dismantle an 82-year-old radio tower that broadcast the University’s first radio station and presently serves the student radio station KJHK, officials said today. University Fire Marshal and Special Projects Manager for Design and Construction Management Bob Rombach said high winds slammed a 10-by-30 foot section of roof from the adjacent Art and Design Building into the lower midsection of the self-supporting steel tower located behind Marvin Hall, bending some of the supports. KJHK’s communication cable on the tower also was hit squarely by the roof section. Because of the kink in the cable, KJHK has only been able to operate at half its full 2900-watt power since the storm.

The radio station was off the air for two days after the storm because of a power outage. KJHK’s antenna will be relocated to the Kansas Public Radio tower on west campus. During the transition, KJHK will be off the air Sunday evening and will temporarily broadcast only though it’s Web site starting midnight March 27.


New Web Jobs at Fox 4, KC

Sandra Barry sent a note to me about her station's website and some positions that should becoming available. I will now excerpt her e-mail:

"The station has (finally) demonstrated a dedication to de-sucking our web site by creating new positions for a web manager and three web producers. Going for a soft launch August-ish, I believe. I've seen the mock-ups and it looks like pretty good stuff. The new MM newsroom at KUJH has turned out some great web producers over the past couple of years, and I'm hoping to get some of them in, but it would be lovely if you could give everyone a heads up on the web site, too. Working at WDAF is fun; you heard it from me. The job descriptions are posted on the only-temporarily-awful WDAFTV4.COM.


So, if you're looking for such a job, there's a lead.

News Set Wanted

After 10 years of using various incarnations of the old KCTV set, we are in desperate need of a new one. It will come as no surprise, of course, that we have no money for this purpose. Therefore, we are looking for donations. If your station, or one that you know of, is getting a new set, we would be interested in possibly taking the old ones off their hands. We would, of course, pay for the cost of getting it here (so the closer you are to Lawrence, the better). I'm not sure, but it's possible this donation may be tax deductible.

Where Are They Now & Comments

Two things today. The "Where Are They Now" section of the site is up and running, but I believe it to be sorely outdated. It needs some updating. Help me out by passing on the whereabouts of the people you know about. You can see the people who I think I have incorrect info about on the page. (The link is on the left.) People that I'm nearly positive have wrong info appear in red. Those that I think may be wrong are in purple, and those I am fairly confident in are in black. Please e-mail me at if you have updates on those people who I need updates for or if you're one of the people who needs to be added or updated.

Secondly, I have added comments to the site. From now on, whenever a new posting is added, you will be able to add a comment to it that everyone can read. Also, all old posts have comment areas available. Have fun.

I Broke It!

Allright...I broke the website. The last time I did a backend overhaul of the site, I broke it, and I didn't realize it until Michelle and Derek told me. Sorry. I'll fix it soon.
