    It’s curious that these stations are commercial and not public radio stations. Other public radio stations pre-date the public broadcasting act and operated as educational, municipal or extension stations before becoming public radio stations and still hold commercial licenses. But there are a few exceptions. Notre Dame and Loyola University of the South come to mind. Just seems unbecoming for a university to operate commercial stations. Then again, so is big-time Division IA college sports.
