Michigan State University says it will not auction off the broadcast frequency used by its public television station, WKAR-TV.
Instead, MSU is partnering with Detroit Public Television to offer more programming across multiple platforms.
MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon made the announcement at a Monday press conference.
"We want to be the intellectual partner for the station as we think community engagement, and as we think about the needs of the community," Simon said.
