KLRU announces a new channel featuring entertaining and inspiring shows about history, music, science, nature, food and more. The channel called Q will begin broadcasting Wednesday, July 1. Q will feature ‘blocks’ of programming throughout the day, with genres chosen specifically for the Austin audience. The channel will be available over the air on 18-3. KLRU also broadcasts its core PBS programming on 18-1 and KLRU Create on 18-2 featuring how to, do-it-yourself and crafting shows. Schedules for all channels are available on KLRU’s Web site at klru.org/schedule.
“One of the great things about the switch to all digital broadcasting is our ability to deliver more programming to Austin viewers, and we have designed KLRU-Q to be diverse, informative, entertaining, and fun., We are really excited to be able to bring a new channel to our Central Texas viewers that features a different lineup from KLRU but with the same quality of programs you’ve come to rely on,” said Bill Stotesbery, general manager of KLRU. “Some of the programming will be familiar and some will only be available on KLRU-Q, but it will all have the same high quality long associated with PBS.”
