Nevada Public Radio
Nevada Public Radio was established in 1975 as an independent, non-for-profit, public benefit corporation. KNPR 89.5 FM signed on the air in 1980 as Nevada's first National Public Radio corporation. After 23 years, KNPR became News 88.9 KNPR, an all-news and information station on October 31, 2003 and simultaneously, Classical 89.7 KCNV, a 24-hour classical music station was launched. In addition to the Las Vegas stations, Nevada Public Radio operates three rural stations and a network of 10 translators. For more than two decades, Nevada Public Radio has remained true to its mission "to enhance the quality of life and build a better community by providing high quality, non-commercial radio programming, leadership and services to a substantial audience." Nevada Public Radio is located at 1289 S. Torrey Pines Drive in Las Vegas and can be reached at (702) 258-9895 or at websites www.knpr.org and www.classical897.org.
