KUER (FM-90) can now be heard in Cedar City because the University of Utah station has expanded its broadcasting system by installing its 19th Utah translator station.
The new Cedar City translator went on-line earlier this week, and KUER is located at 88.3 on the FM dial for that area."We are very excited to be able to make good our promise to the 36 Cedar City residents who signed a petition two years ago asking KUER to bring Public Radio to the Cedar City area," KUER station manager Bunk Robinson said.
The new translator is also part of an on-going effort by KUER to cover the entire state with Public Radio.
KUER obtained a 75 percent matching grant from the National Telecommunications Information Agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce in order to purchase and install the translator station.
KBER (FM-106.5) was one of fifty U.S radio stations that was selected to be part of a historic broadcast to China.
"China America" started airing for one hour, twice a week, on April 14 to a potential Chinese audience of 1.1 million.
One radio station from all 50 states was selected to be a part of the series, and KBER's morning team of Street Stryder and Katherine Brown received the honor.
The broadcast tapes will eventually be displayed in the Smithsonian.
