It’s a big move for the independent, student-run college radio station, located in the basement of CU Boulder’s University Memorial Center (UMC).

The recent purchase and implementation of an FM translator means that, for the first time ever, Radio 1190’s signal can be picked up on 98.9 FM in the Boulder Valley, Lyons, Golden and along US 36 to Broomfield, Colorado.
