Ranked as one of the most popular public radio stations in the nation, KPLU has been bringing award winning local and National Public Radio news, jazz and blues to the Puget Sound Region since 1966. Known to many as "NPR News and All That Jazz," we find a diverse, growing ... See more audience by broadcasting both from our studios on the Pacific Lutheran University campus in Tacoma, Washington and near the Space Needle in downtown Seattle. We pride ourselves as being the region's leading source of award-winning jazz, blues, and in-depth local and NPR news, 24 hours a day. As we keep pace with the exciting changes in radio, and the advent of our full time jazz webstream and HD2 channel, Jazz24, we now identify ourselves as a public media company, Pacific Public Media. We look to provide more than broadcasting in the traditional sense, and are broadening the international content of KPLU to include all forms of listener-supported media. Pacific Public Media is a community service of Pacific Lutheran University. Our History Early in 1980 KPLU moved its transmitter site off-campus to a tower near Port Orchard once owned by Burlington Northern Railroad. In February the station added National Public Radio news and information to its program mix. In 1983 KPLU switched from classical to jazz and NPR news and by 1985 was broadcasting 24 hours a day. The mid-80s and early 90s also saw an increase in KPLU's geographical coverage as the station installed a network of seven "translators" to relay its signal all over western Washington and lower British Columbia. KPLU moved its main transmitter to its present location on West Tiger Mountain in 1989, bringing even wider coverage and a clearer signal to our listeners.
