WARRENSBURG — The University of Central Missouri has finished transferring ownership of its campus radio station to Kansas City Public Television.

The university says the transfer of KTBG occurred this week after the Federal Communications Commission signed off on it. KCPT is planning a public launch on Jan. 6.

KCPT spent $1.1 million to buy the license to operate the station and is planning to spend $600,000 for improvements, including tower upgrades.

KCPT has agreed to offer internships to university students and air some programming produced by the university's public television station, KMOS-TV.

The acquisition marks KCPT's first radio endeavor.
