The University of Toledo's radio station is back on the Internet after a hiatus of a couple of years prompted by fears over proposed national fee requirements.
The university ceased Webcasting music in 2000 when it left its provider and didn't immediately resume because of worries that proposed national royalty fee-plans and bulky reporting requirements would be prohibitive, officials said.
While those issues need to be resolved, it appears that any requirements will be manageable, said Terry Teagarden, coordinator of student media at UT. That's why its station, WXUT-FM (88.3), returned this week to cyberspace at www.wxut.utoledo.edu, Webcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Going online allows UT, which shares its frequency with Toledo Public Schools, to give more students an opportunity to be on the air as well as expand its audience, Mr. Teagarden said.
