Lander/Riverton and the Wind River Reservation Received Stronger Wyoming Public Radio Service

Feb 5, 2014

Wyoming Public Radio is now heard on 90.9 in the Wind River corridor.   Classical Wyoming, WPM’s classical music service, is now heard on 91.9.  

Wyoming Public Media (WPM) changed frequencies in the Lander/Riverton area.

“The stronger KUWW 90.0 ensures an improved signal and has a broader reach.  The new signal represents a power increase from 10 watts to 8,000 watts,” says Shane Toven, WPM Director of Engineering.

[The move was made possible through a transfer of KFTW educational frequency, licensed to Fremont County School District 21, to Wyoming Public Media, and a cooperative agreement with the Shoshone & Arapaho Tribes Joint Business Council to broadcast from a tower site in the Sand Hills located on the Wind River Indian Reservation.  The Tribe’s role in the agreement is acknowledged in the Station IDs at the top of each hour.]
