Public Radio service is available on the High Plains because of the extraordinary, ongoing support of individuals, businesses, organizations and foundations from across the region. Such deep private support is essential given the relatively sparse population of the region compared to areas served by urban public radio stations. HPPR also incurs higher engineering expenses than urban stations given the need for an extensive network of transmitters to reach the widespread region. And, unlike about two-thirds of all public radio stations, HPPR is an independent non-profit organization and receives no direct or in-kind support from a university, college or state public broadcasting agency.
