Station Announcements

On Thursday, April 24 at 7:30, join Northwest Public Radio at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in Tacoma, for a live taping of From the Top! Get your tickets now.

The transmitter serving Wenatchee and Ellensburg on 90.7 is running at low power and the signal is very weak. As it serves as the audio source of KHNW 88.3 in Chelan/Waterville/Manson, that signal is also compromised.

Engineers are unable to access KNWR to investigate and fix this problem, because the road tothe transmitter site is impassable due to deep snow and ice. They're keeping a close eye on temperatures, and as soon as warmer temperatures allow access, they are ready to take the snow cat up the mountain.

As soon as we reach the goal of  2,000 pledges, we'll end the fund drive.  Just ZERO more and this drive will be OVER! Thank YOU.

 Your pledge now will take this drive one step closer to ending early.

Thank you for listening to Northwest Public Radio, and for your generous support!

With listener feedback as our guide to this year’s program changes, some new and exciting programs have joined the Sunday lineup on the NPR News service, while reducing the number of repeat broadcasts.

Northwest Public Radio is now in the jazz business, with a third program stream airing on its newest station, KJEM.  (LISTEN). Click here for current on-air playlist.

A signal receiver has failed again, leaving the Bellingham translator unable to broadcast a clean feed of the NPR News service. We are working with the manufacturer to get a replacement as soon as possible, but briefly, 104.7 will air the NPR and Classical Music service instead.

We are deeply disappointed in the repeated equipment problems associated with this translator, and apologize for any inconvenience.

During this period, you can listen to the NPR News service on this page.  

Thank you to the many listeners who called or donated online.  If you did not get a chance to make your pledge, there is still time:

Make your pledge now!

UPDATE: The NPR News service translator in Ellensburg at 89.9 FM was back on the air on Wednesday evening.

The StoryCorps oral history project is partnering with Northwest Public Radio, Yakima Valley Community Foundation and Yakima Valley Museum  to record, preserve, and share the stories of communities in the Yakima area and the Northwest. 

KZAZ is still not producing a usable HD-2 signal, so our Bellingham translator at 104.7 is still airing the NPR and Classical Music service.

Our engineers are working with the transmitter manufacturer on the problematic parts so we can 

 restore the NPR News service to 104.7 as soon as possible.

We sincerely apologize for the extended delay, and  appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to in get things back to normal in Bellingham in the next few days. 

You can listen to both program services online on this page.
