KTUH is a non-commercial, student-run, listener-supported station in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was Hawaii's first non-commercial FM station, and signed on the air July 7, 1969. Their programming originates from the studios located on the campus of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The station runs 24 hours a day all year round and there is always a live DJ producing their programming; the station never switches to prerecorded material. Typically, the programming is divided into consecutive 3-hour blocks with a distinct musical theme per block, usually hosted by a University of Hawaii student or, occasionally, a faculty member. As a highly diversified representative station of the people of a multicultural environment, every musical genre is typically touched upon over the course of two or three days of programming, including jazz, assorted Latino sounds, hip-hop, punk, alternative, metal, goth, reggae, electronic, Hawaiian, country, various world music strains, and many more.

It currently broadcasts on 90.3 MHz, however, the University of Hawaii holds a construction permit to move to 90.1 MHz. There are two translators: K210DX on 89.9 FM in the Windward areas and K217AA on 91.3 FM in the North Shore. In addition, it is also featured on Oceanic Time Warner Cable digital channel 866 for the entire state of Hawaii.[1]
