CENTENNIAL, Colo. (Feb. 11, 2010) – Colorado Public Radio (CPR) announced Thursday that it has improved its classical music reception in Boulder through a newly acquired lease of Boulder translator 99.9FM. CPR Classical Music broadcasts on 88.1FM in Denver and also provides statewide coverage through other frequencies across Colorado.

“As part of our community service, a major goal of Colorado Public Radio is to improve our signal strength when viable opportunities present themselves and there is local financial support,” said CPR President Max Wycisk.

The lease follows a test period in December when a representative sample of Boulder listeners was surveyed about the quality of the signal. Seventy-five percent of the respondents rated the new 99.9FM translator as either good or excellent.

“The ability to provide this improved signal in Boulder is a direct result of financial commitments from listeners who support our mission of keeping classical music thriving in Colorado,” said Wycisk.

Colorado Public Radio is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides 24-hour, in-depth news and music to about 460,000 listeners each week (Source: Arbitron, 2011). More than 90 percent of CPR's funds come from the private support of listeners, businesses and foundations.
