Ball State University has decided to keep its PBS affiliate, WIPB Indianapolis, on air rather than sell its spectrum in the recent FCC auction.
The Associated Press reports the Muncie, Ind. school opted not to sell WIPB’s frequency, which could have reaped millions of dollars, because doing so would not be in the school’s best interest.
The report comes after two other schools, Central Michigan University and the University of South Florida, last week announced their non-commercial stations would be going dark after selling their spectrums.
