In May 2013, University of Ozarks radio station KUOZ 100.5FM LP celebrated ten years on the air! For over a decade, this station has provided the campus and community with a wide array of programming of every sort, everything from music (jazz, big band, rock, country, and gospel, plus more) to news, as well as original student programming.
