First off, as people noticed pretty quickly, the domain names savewrvu.org and savewrvu.com had already been registered before the announcement was made, and both redirected to the board's official announcement. That raised more than a few eyebrows, especially since the domains were registered by proxy, which seemed pretty sneaky and weird. Those domains have since been handed over to the WRVU staff, according to general manager Mikil Taylor, and today both of those addresses redirect to savewrvuradio.com. Of course, vandymedia.org is still the official place to file your comments to the board.
Secondly, the aforementioned Save WRVU Radio site has posted a list of who's coordinating what (petitions, PSAs, mobilizing alumni, etc.) in the effort to keep WRVU on the air, so if you're interested in getting involved, check that out.
Thirdly, I talked to Joe Miller, director of signal development for the Educational Media Foundation — the parent company of Christian radio station K-Love — about the "local speculation" that EMF might be a potential buyer for WRVU's broadcast license. He said that EMF has "not been hunting for a radio station in Nashville," and that while EMF has "noticed the same articles" about the potential sale, they are not pursuing a purchase at this time.
And there you have it, for now. Look for a City Limits piece in this week's print edition.
