BPR swapped frequencies for BPR News and BPR Classic on Monday, October 31.

BPR’s 20 frequencies across Western North Carolina switched places on the radio dial today, October 31, delivering on a promise to bring more news to more people.

This expansion of service is BPR’s first step in a larger plan to meet crucial information needs in a region designated a “news desert” with low broadband access.

In time, BPR hopes to expand the coverage footprints and is researching the opportunities and costs of expanding a distinct music channel.

Please see the list below to locate the frequencies in your area. If you prefer BPR Classic, but can no longer hear it terrestrially, please view the listening options further below. We want to ensure your access to both BPR News and BPR Classic.
