KUT is proud to be the Austin home for storytelling shows like “This American Life,” “Snap Judgment” and “The Moth Radio Hour.” These shows enhance daily lives because of the connection that is created between the storyteller and the listener.

Our mission at KUT is to celebrate the power of the human voice – and these shows directly reflect that.

Though its history is short, the legacy of “Texas Standard” already big. “Texas Standard” is the name of the news magazine that will begin daily production early in 2015. However, KUT has already started to air segments produced by “Texas Standard.”

When you make your $100 monthly gift, you’ll be entered into the KUT Leadership Circle. Members of this group receive invitations to exclusive events, early ticket purchase opportunities and opportunities to meet public radio personalities.

Leadership Circle Members say the best thing about giving $100 a month is knowing that they are doing their part to support public radio in Central Texas.

  Each morning KUT News reporters meet to discuss the news of the day and determine which stories are impacting civic life in Central Texas. Then, the reporter is off to conduct interviews, record sound and gather background information.

When education reporter Kate McGee reports on the Austin Independent School District she talks with AISD employees on the phone followed by a visit to AISD headquarters or a school campus to learn more and capture photos and audio.

KUT News has reported on the switch from at-large representation on city council to district representation from the beginning.  KUT News has been describing each step from when the initiative was just a proposal on a ballot to now when candidates’ names for each district are on the ballot.
