The sudden closure and conversion of the station to an online-only format drew sad and angry words from some in the Bay Area music community, and from peer stations across the country.
• Station manager Steve Runyon announced at a summer 2010 meeting that the station faced eviction by USF and may move to Fort Mason. He also mentioned the possibility of the license being sold. Other Jesuit college radio stations, including Los Angeles station KXLU, have had similar actions take place -- threats and sales of licenses.
• At the January 2011 meeting it was announced that the station would move to a new building on campus, but there was no mention of losing the FM license.
• USF administrators (including KUSF paid staff) sign a very strict confidentiality agreement, so they've always been tight lipped about anything related to station finances, inner workings, and business with the university -- hence the "surprise" announcement.
