For a group with annual operating costs of $20,400, that's a big cut. But the money had tied the University of Utah's KUTE to the whims of the group that doled it out: the student government (ASUU). Says the KUTE manager, "ASUU does not know how to run a radio station, [and] they shouldn't run a radio station." The manager's preference: a merger with the student paper, the Daily Utah Chronicle. What's the Chronicle's comment? Either it doesn't have one, or its reporter forgot to ask.
