University of Minnesota Board of Regents Approves Purchase Agreement for the Sale of KUMD to WDSE•WRPT

DULUTH, MINN – On October 9, 2020, the Board of Regents approved the purchase agreement for the sale of the community radio station, KUMD, to the community-supported media organization, WDSE•WRPT.

WDSE•WRPT is encouraged by this step and potential acquisition. Upon the signing of the asset purchase agreement, WDSE•WRPT will enter a 90-day due diligence period and is eager to engage the communities we serve through listening sessions during this time.

WDSE•WRPT sees the potential for our station and KUMD, together, to provide Northlanders a complete, full-service public media experience, unique to any other media offering in the Northland. The two stations are poised to become stronger together and to serve the community in a distinctive way that this area has not experienced before – a multi-media organization owned by the community.

We’d Love to Hear from You!
