UPDATE: Students and fans of KUSF are fuming over the middle-of-the-night sale of the station. KUSF has created a Facebook page in protest.

Bay City News reports there will be a protest tonight at 7 p.m. at the Presentation Theater, 2350 Turk Blvd (at Masonic)

Protesters hope to raise $4 million as a counter-offer to the university, so they can take over the station.

KUSF, the University of San Francisco's radio station is being moved to an online only format, according to U of San Francisco's website, Tuesday.

The station currently can only support 100 listeners at a time, and the move will accommodate thousands more. 

The University sold the frequency to, 90.3 FM to Classical Public Radio Network, which is owned by University of Southern California.

KUSF staff will be offered similar positions at their new home, which can be found at KUSF.org.
