KCCU-FM began broadcasting in 1989 as a non-profit station licensed under Cameron University, providing the Lawton/Ft. Sill/Duncan area with classical music. As the station's support and reputation grew, programming grew to include jazz, variety shows, and of course National Public Radio news.
In addition to national broadcasts, KCCU produces a live, two-hour classical music program, Midday Concert, on weekdays, which has remained our most popular music show for many years. KCCU also produces a number of unique local segments such as The Genealogy Minute and Mary McClure's Slice of Life.
As an operating unit of Cameron University, KCCU provides broadcast students with many internship opportunities. Our interns produce thousands of free Public Service Announcements for area non-profits each year, helping to spread the word about the many charitable organizations in our area.
The KCCU network has grown quickly. Over the years, we have added full-power stations in Altus, Ardmore, Wichita Falls, and the Clinton/Western Oklahoma area. Most recently, KCCU has added a translator in Chickasha, allowing us to cover an area stretching from rural north Texas and the entire southwest portion of Oklahoma with unbroken public radio service.
