Prairie Public is strengthening 91.7fm radio signal in Harvey area

FARGO, N.D., June 29, 2011—Public radio fans in the Harvey area will notice that Prairie Public is fine-tuning its place on the radio dial. Effective this weekend, Prairie Public’s radio programming will be available, and stronger, at 91.7fm.

Prairie Public’s director of radio, Bill Thomas, explained that the non-profit radio network has been broadcasting with a low power transmitter on 91.9 in the Harvey area. A new tower in Devils Lake began broadcasting a stronger signal at 91.7fm in 2010. To avoid radio interference, Prairie Public will retire the 91.9 signal this weekend, leaving the 91.7fm signal intact and stronger.

In addition to regional news, music, and entertainment programs, Prairie Public’s statewide radio network broadcasts NPR’s “Morning Edition,” “All Things Considered,” “A Prairie Home Companion,” “Car Talk,” and other public radio favorites. Listeners in the Harvey area who use an HD radio will receive two different Prairie Public programming options, and both options are available worldwide at prairiepublic.org/radio.

Prairie Public Broadcasting, headquartered in Fargo, is a non-profit organization and community licensee that provides public television services throughout North Dakota, northwestern Minnesota, southern Manitoba, and parts of Montana and South Dakota, and public radio service to North Dakota. In addition to broadcasting services, Prairie Public Broadcasting provides a wide range of educational and technological services to communities and individuals across its coverage area.
