WPR News & Classical - W284AN - FM 104.7 - Ashland, WI

SINCE 1917, A STIMULATING, INFORMATIVE AND ENTERTAINING COMPANION

Wisconsin Public Radio is a civic and cultural resource which exists to enlighten and enrich the quality of life for the people within its listening ... See more area. WPR reflects the values and resources of the University and the State of Wisconsin, and embraces the “Wisconsin Idea”, helping to extend the borders of the University to the State and beyond, and providing significant programming by, for and about the people of Wisconsin. WPR’s Mission is to realize the Wisconsin Idea by producing, acquiring and delivering high quality audio programming that serves the public’s need to discuss ideas and opinions, and that provides cultural enrichment, intellectual stimulation, and intelligent, enlightening entertainment. WPR is a partnership of the Educational Communications Board and the University of Wisconsin, and we will build on the strength of this partnership to maintain and expand where possible a high quality dual service broadcast signal throughout the state (The Ideas Network and the NPR News and Classical Music Network), while at the same time exploring and developing new platforms to deliver our content to listeners. We will help to curate the Wisconsin Idea by serving as an accessible repository for content that we create or make available through collaborations and partnerships with other cultural and community institutions around the state. We will maintain a strong presence in the state by strengthening our system of Regional Bureaus to provide outreach, community involvement, and local/statewide program content. We will serve as a forum for discussion and exchange of ideas and opinions on the topic of the day. We will focus on programming in the areas where we are uniquely strong, utilizing the intellectual and cultural resources of the University and the State of Wisconsin, with a special emphasis on Wisconsin-related content. Wisconsin Public Radio is proud to be among the first radio stations in the United States to implement the new "HD" digital radio service. HD Radio promises to increase the quality and reliability of our signals while adding additional features. Many of the WPR stations around the state are now equipped for "HD Radio" - the high-definition digital radio service. HD Radio is now available from these WPR stations: WHA-AM 970 Madison WLBL-AM 930 Auburndale WHWC-FM 88.3 Menomonie/Eau Claire WERN-FM 88.7 Madison WLSU-FM 88.9 La Crosse WHAA-FM 89.1 Adams WPNE-FM 89.3 Green Bay WHLA-FM 90.3 La Crosse WHBM-FM 90.3 Park Falls WHAD-FM 90.7 Delafield/Milwaukee WHRM-FM 90.9 Wausau WHHI-FM 91.3 Highland KUWS-FM 91.3 Superior WHDI-FM 91.9 Sister Bay HD Radio is a new technology that allows broadcasters to seamlessly transmit digital quality audio alongside today's analog-based broadcasts - a tremendous technological leap from the familiar "analog" broadcasts. These digital broadcast channels provide listeners with radically improved audio quality and reception. Signal static, hisses and pops are a thing of the past. Data services such as displayed song and artist information, weather and traffic alerts, and much more are now possible and will revolutionize the experience of AM and FM radio listeners. And it's free - just like today's analog AM and FM radio. Little or no change in listener behavior is required since all the local radio station dial positions will remain the same. You'll simply tune to your favorite programs and stations, and receive them in either a digital or analog format depending on your radio. Because new HD Radio stations will begin their digital broadcasting using a "hybrid mode" (transmitting digital and analog signals simultaneously), you'll still be able to pick up our broadcasts on your analog radios, but you'll be able to seamlessly upgrade to digital at your own pace. HD Radio technology was developed by iBiquity Digital Corp and approved in October 2002 by the Federal Communications Commission. If you'd like to shop for an HD receiver, see our Store Information Guide in the right column. Many stores throughout Wisconsin and online are now stocking HD Radio receivers and prices are rapidly declining. The WPR HD Radio stations are being upgraded with state Building Commission funds, contributions from public radio listeners, and through grant support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
