No other Austin station brings you national and local news like KUT 90.5 FM. KUT is more than just Austin’s NPR Station. Our listeners can tune in 24 hours a day for news and information from NPR, PRI, the BBC and our own newsroom. Staples like Morning Edition and All Things Considered from National Public Radio, plus programs like The World from Public Radio International and BBC News Hour bring global perspectives, and award-winning local news from KUT's reporters are all in the palm of your hand. Download, tune in, and listen wherever you may be.

This new version of our app focuses on two things--a high-quality stream and the program schedule. We've thrown a couple other things in there too, but this is what our listeners have asked for most. We're providing an all digital, efficient stream using the AAC+ codec. It sounds great on all platforms, devices, radios and even over cellular. Tap in some headphones or plug your phone and have a listen.

If you're also a fan of KUTX -- The Austin Music Experience or our spin on Latin rock, Alt Latino, please download the individual versions of those apps as well. Similar features, and the same great audio. We've separated the apps so we can bring better and different features to each in the future.

And if you're still using the legacy KUT app, the white one with blues and yellows, please switch to this version and delete the old one. We'll be turning it off this summer along with the low-bitrate streams it only supports, going back to the days when the cellular networks could barely handle 24 kbps streams.

KUT 90.5 FM is a public radio station from The University of Texas. We broadcast from the Moody College of Communication in the Belo Center for New Media on campus, bringing you 24-hour news and information from NPR, PRI, the BBC & KUT News. We couldn’t do what we do without your continued support. Thanks for listening!

Used to cut out, now doesn't work at all


I can always count on this app to stop working, then I close the app and restart it. How long the streaming goes on afterwards is a crap shoot. On some occasions, it doesn't work at all, like right now. I have a strong phone signal so I turn the wifi off on my phone, and the app still does not work. It bothers me that I can't just use the radio. The radio signal just went away a couple years ago . I guess is could try a kera app.

Does the job well


I just got the app. It plays the station perfectly, provides the schedule to help me plan my listening time, and no dropping of the connection.

Fix the app!


The old app worked slightly better than the new regarding the dropped connection issue. The new app is unusable due to the need to restart it constantly, every 5 minutes or so. I'm back to using the radio function on my old nano and headphones. Please fix it! This app is like the news: dreadful!
