Public Radio Returning to Midland/Odessa

Staff Report

MIDLAND/ODESSA - Public radio is making a comeback to the Midland/Odessa area.

After Odessa College could no longer afford to keep their station KOCV running, Marfa Public Radio snatched it up.

In December, they shelled out $300,000 for the station.

The tower will be moved from the college campus and planted in Gardendale.

The plan will now save the school $30,000 to $50,000 a year.

They're hoping to have the station re-launch in the spring clearer and stronger than before.
