Southern Ute Tribe offers $1 million matching grant for KSUT public radio station

One of the first radio stations in Indian Country is raising funds to move to a new home.

KSUT, a public radio station, needs $2.1 million for the Eddie Box, Jr. Media Center, according to its capital campaign plan. The effort has gotten a big boost with a matching grant of $1 million from the Southern Ute Tribe, The Durango Herald reported.

To secure the funds, KSUT must raise the $1 million between now and October 2018, the paper said. If that happens, the station will have essentially met its goal.

“This match has made our efforts toward a new facility that very tangible,” board president Maria Baker said in a statement quoted by the paper.

The Eddie Box, Jr. Media Center will house Four Corners Public Radio and Southern Ute Tribal Radio. It will be located in Ignacio, on the Southern Ute Reservation in Colorado.
