In 1944, KRCC began as a two-room public address system in the basement of Bemis Hall. Professor Woodson "Chief" Tyree, Director of Radio and Drama Department at Colorado College was the founder and inspirational force in the program that one day became KRCC-FM. In 1946, KRCC moved to South Hall ... See more (where Packard Hall now stands) on campus where two students, Charles "Bud" Edmonds '51, and Margaret Merle-Smith '51, were instrumental in securing a war surplus FM transmitter. KRCC began over the air broadcasting in April of 1951 as the first non-commercial educational FM radio station in the state of Colorado. Broadcasts were primarily on evenings and weekends for the purpose of training 30 students each year. Professor Tyree retired in 1968, and with his retirement radio and speech courses at Colorado College were dropped from the curriculum. Today, KRCC operates with a unique collaboration of broadcast professionals, students, and community volunteers dedicated to providing our audience throughout southern Colorado the very best programming public radio has to offer. Woodson "Chief "Tyree with his wife, Ruth Students then took over the extra-curricular operation of KRCC with an appointed faculty advisor. In 1972, a 1000-watt transmitter was installed which effectively opened the doors of Colorado College radio to the surrounding community. KRCC's student staff ended the "students only" policy in 1977/78, opening the microphones to community members of all ages, interests, and walks of life. Students interested in the potential of KRCC initiated an ad-hoc committee to develop options which would best serve the public as a community service of the college. The committee sought and won approval for upgrading KRCC to a National Public Radio (NPR) member station. In June of 1984, KRCC moved out of Rastall Center and into its own studio building (which was entirely remodeled by volunteers), constructed the facilities to broadcast from Cheyenne Mountain and the Manitou Springs translator, and by Fall began airing NPR news.
