ULM's student radio station KXUL now available through mobile app

The latest content update for the official ULM mobile app, ULM Mobile, now lets users listen live to ULM's student-driven radio station, KXUL.

Users running the latest version of ULM Mobile on their iPhone or Android device need only press the "91X-KXUL" icon to begin streaming their favorite music from anywhere, right from their phones.

Alexsander Tewelde, who graduated from ULM’s College of Pharmacy in May 2011, said, "I love listening to KXUL, and it's cool that now I can listen from anywhere in the world through the ULM app. I can take a piece of ULM with me wherever I go."

KXUL has been ULM's student radio station for over a quarter century, and while online streaming has been available for years, this marks the first time KXUL's live stream has been made available through ULM Mobile.

ULM Director of University Broadcasting, Joel Willer, said, "At KXUL, we believe in the importance of being on as many technology platforms as possible. Mobile access to the station's stream through the ULM app is a logical extension of KXUL's existing offerings."

ULM’s technology staff developed the free app in response to a recent survey showing 78 percent of ULM students use a smart phone device.

The app allows students to do everything they can do from a desktop computer—review class schedules, check email, access athletics and campus news, vote in campus elections, and even learn about scholarship opportunities.

The app creators—Rob Glaze, Richard Peacock, and Paul Gullette—are all ULM alums.

ULM President Nick Bruno said, “ULM is fortunate to have the level of in-house expertise to develop technology customized for the university’s needs.”

The app is free to download from the iPhone and Android app stores, as well as available through a web-based version for most other modern smartphones.
