Moving Forward…

The digital studios of ClassicaL KUCO, a community-supported outreach program of the University of Central Oklahoma for over 50 years, are located in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City providing a professional broadcast space for the station and a central location to engage the performing arts community. 

The studios showcase a full-height glass exterior façade which punctuates the space with natural light allowing pedestrians to observe the operations of this state-of-the-art broadcasting facility. It also permits station staff and guests to enjoy the beauty of the completed Banc First tower and concourse renovation on the west side.

The interior design is a modern yet inviting and cohesive space supporting both independent and collaborative work and features a nuanced gray-blue color scheme reflecting University of Central Oklahoma branding.  This new contemporary design encourages and supports the station’s professional mission to its listening community across Oklahoma.

Integral to operations, production and broadcasting is the installation of state of the art equipment within one on-air and two production studios.

KUCO continues to utilize its broadcast tower between Britton and Hefner in Oklahoma City. The connection between the downtown studios and the transmitter are now linked via fiber optic cable and receive satellite communications at the tower site.

As a Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) station, KUCO offers a format showcasing classical music and performing arts programming across Oklahoma, serving over 55,000+ listeners each week.  The station and several hosts are also the recipients of four Governor’s Arts Awards in Media and have received commendations from the Oklahoma City Mayor, the Oklahoma Governor, a number of public and private entities and have been featured in articles published by the Daily and Sunday Oklahoman, The Journal Record, Edmond Life and Leisure, University of Central Oklahoma publications and Oklahoma Today.
