The mission of The University of Houston Downtown Internet Radio Station is twofold: 1. To inform, entertain, and enlighten its campus of diverse listeners by presenting an eclectic mix of programs; and 2. To serve as an educational venue equipped to provide students with a laboratory in which they may explore a variety of careers in radio broadcasting.
