North Country Public Radio Increases Service Area to Keene Valley and St. Huberts (7/21/05)

North Country Public Radio has installed new transmitters to serve the communities of Keene Valley and St. Huberts. The new signals broadcast at 96.3 FM in Keene Valley and 101.7 FM in St. Huberts.

Based in Canton, in St. Lawrence County, North Country Public Radio operates a network of repeater stations throughout the North Country. The commercial-free format includes a wide variety of programs from National Public Radio including All Things Considered, Morning Edition, Car Talk, Performance Today and more. NCPR's award winning news team can be heard weekdays at 8:00 am with regional news broadcasts, features and interviews. The station also airs an eclectic mix of locally-hosted music programs.

The new transmitter is funded by a federal grant from the Public Telecommunications Facilities Fund, and generous support from members of the Keene Valley and St. Huberts communities. "We have long heard from residents in the Keene Valley and St. Huberts area asking us to bring our signal to their communities," said North Country Public Radio Station Manager Ellen Rocco. "We gratefully acknowledge all of the individuals who made these facilities possible and we hope that NCPR will be a friendly companion and trustworthy resource for all of our new listeners."

Station Manager Ellen Rocco, Adirondack News Bureau Chief Brian Mann and other NCPR staff will be participating in the Keene Valley Fire Department Field Day on July 31 from 3 pm to 9 pm to celebrate these new community facilities. NCPR encourages people to stop by the festivities, support the Fire Department and meet station staff.
