Frequently Asked Questions
Why did St. Louis Public Radio take over the operations of WQUB?
Quincy University needed to focus its energy and limited resources to not only sustaining but also strengthening its primary mission and providing an exceptional education for its students. Therefore, the university sought outside resources to help preserve public radio in the region. St. Louis Public Radio and UMSL officials felt that it was vitally important to continue WQUB’s operations to ensure that public radio would remain a viable community service in the Quincy region.
Will WQUB Still Exist?
WQUB will still exist, but it will be called WQUB Quincy. Its dial position will remain 90.3-FM.
Are My Membership Dollars Paying For This?
Membership dollars raised by St. Louis Public Radio will be used to pay for public radio programming that currently airs on the station and will air on Quincy Public Radio moving forward. In consideration for the station, St. Louis Public Radio is paying Quincy University (QU) $40 thousand plus other reimbursements, $50 thousand in promotional underwriting to highlight various QU activities, providing technical support to help launch a QU student internet radio station, and offering opportunities for QU students to intern at St. Louis Public Radio.
