About this app

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!

This app has always been a little buggy. Sometimes it takes a long time for the play stream feature to even start. There is a pause/play button for the unlock screen but that doesn't matter because it doesnt work. Now suddenly the app is closing itself when I try to start streaming. Wanted to support the local station app but it looks like I'll need to use the national NPR or some other third party app for my KUT.

works great! i always want to hear the "end of the story" when i get out of the car to go shopping [or whatever I'm doing] and the app is great for that (especially where there is free wifi). there's a small ad right when you turn it on that doesn't bother me at all (it might even just be a "sponsored by" spot, I've never even noticed). works just fine. thanks!

It needs an exit option that closes the App completely. If I use the app for streaming them get in my car the Bluetooth automatically will start playing the stream again. You can blame the car or the Bluetooth but if the App wasn't running in the background it wouldn't be able to do it.
