Throughout 2011, KUT News devoted tremendous resources, personnel, and airtime to covering significant breaking news and issues of ongoing importance to Central Texas. This compilation is sort of a "greatest hits" of KUT News' reporting work in 2011. It includes breaking and ongoing coverage of the Central Texas wildfires; ongoing coverage of the devastating drought; a look at veterans and the military in Central Texas; reports on development and traffic, an open records scandal, teacher layoffs, Occupy Austin, possible rural post office closures, and Rick Perry on the presidential campaign trail. The compilation also includes feature reporting on the Austin City Limits 2011 Music Festival, music and architecture, and the migration of monarch butterflies through Central Texas. It concludes with a sample newscast from September 7, 2011.
