KUJH-LP channel 31, is an independent television station owned and operated by the University of Kansas. The Student television station broadcast predominantly public affairs programs.

Its primary purpose is to serve as a hands-on "laboratory" for its journalism students. Unlike KOMU-TV of Columbia, Missouri, it is not affiliated with any network (though it did air the Research Channel when local programming was not scheduled) and only utilizes cable TV channel 31 on Knology (formerly Sunflower Broadband) and channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse in Kansas City, Missouri to transmit its signal. Residents in the Residential Halls in the University of Kansas can also view it on RESNET 31 and digital channel 2-1.

Its signal reaches AT&T U-Verse subscribers in Kansas City, Missouri, the broadcast area in which Lawrence, KUJH-TV's city of license, is located. It also reaches viewers in western Kansas City, Kansas through WOW on channel 31, a Lawrence-based cable company which serves the Piper area of Kansas City, Kansas.

History

KUJH-LP began testing on February 10, 1995. Regular programming began April 23, 1996, with much of the content filled by the St. Paul, Minnesota-based All News Channel.

Until about 2005 KUJH broadcast locally produced independent films and TV shows from the university, local and regional film scene. One program of note was "Out of Focus"; hosted by then KU Film School student Chris Martin. The program was a mix of interviews with local film makers as well as airings of short films and previews. However, in 2005 programs that were produced by non-journalism students were removed from the station’s programming.[1]

The station's license was cancelled by the Federal Communications Commission on June 9, 2014, for failure to file a license renewal application.
