New 99.9FM Translator Boosts Colorado Public Radio Classical Music Signal Quality in Boulder
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 the only 24-hour statewide classical music network in Colorado, providing programming from its extensive music library of more than 30,000 CDs. CPR's music lineup includes the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, the Metropolitan Opera and performances from Colorado's vibrant classical music community.
CPR Classical Music is also available through an HD Radio receiver on 90.1FM HD-2 and online at www.cpr.org.
