DURANT, Okla. (AP) – A broadcaster is providing a student radio station a site to transmit its signal.

Southeastern Oklahoma State University will benefit from a 99-year lease with Texoma Broadcasting Inc., which enables students to broadcast from the company’s new tower.

The Durant Daily Democrat reports that the school’s radio station, KSSU, had transmitted from a tower outside of Durant. That tower was damaged, which led the station to transmit from a temporary site on campus.

The new Texoma tower became available in September.

The lease with the company calls for the university to pay $1 per year.
