"former" college stations

On yesterday's Let's Talk about Radio, it was
mentioned that WCUW in Worcester was formerly owned by
Clark University (you'd think that the calls would
stand for "Clark-University-Worcester" or even "Clark-
University-Wireless") but later broke off from the
college to become a public station.

Probably not the only case of that. WFMU in E. Orange
NJ (not sure) once sent a friend of mine a catalog
of offbeat tapes and products you could buy
(presumably to help fund the station) and it
mentioned that the station was once part of Upsala
College (and I think it said the college became
defunct)-- so that would be another case of a college
station disaffiliating itself from a college. And
there are probably more as well.
