RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) -- You can now look to the University of California, Riverside for straight talk and a clear signal if you need a source on the politics of the California budget, the disease carrying potential of mosquitoes, the strength of spider silk and hundreds of other issues in the news.

UC Riverside has just added an ISDN line, providing the clearest signal possible for radio reporters and producers to interview experts at the university.

The line, which allows the digital transmission of voice, video, data, provides better quality sound than a radio line. The ISDN line has been installed at KUCR, the campus radio station.

The line is available for live or taped interviews of UC Riverside experts. To view a keyword searchable list of experts at UC Riverside visit: http://mediasources.ucr.edu/.
