"Motif Magazine has confirmed rumors that Brown Broadcasting is in the
process of selling modern Alt-Rock station 95.5 WBRU-FM. While phone
calls to WBRU management have gone unanswered, several people close to
the station have verified that the station's Board of Directors has
authorized the sale. However, they report that the station is not
being sold to a major broadcasting company but rather to a local
privately-owned media company. There is rampant speculation about
whether or not the new owners will keep WBRU's modern rock format.

"WBRU celebrated it's 36th year last year, though in fact the station
was started by two Brown University students in the 1936. While
affiliated with Brown, WBRU is not directly owned by the university."
