In Memoriam- Robert F. Schenkkan

In Memoriam
Robert F. Schenkkan
1917-2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert F. Schenkkan. Schenkkan was the founder of both KLRU and KUT, and a true pioneer in public broadcasting. He was also a good friend and advisor.

Here’s a touching tribute to him, his career and his family from 2007.

The Austin American Statesman had this tribute this morning and KUT filed this report.
