HPPR tries to go the extra mile for you, all year long.  By operating a network of 21 stations HPPR is able to serve you in your community and in your travels across the High Plains region.  There are real costs to power and maintain this network, expenses that are far higher per capita than an urban public radio station reaching millions of people with a single transmitter. 

We hope you’ll take a moment before the end of year to go the extra mile in supporting HPPR and the costs of its service to you and your community.  Just click on the red “SUPPORT HPPR” button above.

Help fill the gap left by funding cuts

Dec 16, 2013

Amid all the debate over shrinking government, cutting funding and reducing deficits, support for HPPR is one area where there’s been action and real consequences.  HPPR’s funding from the State of Kansas has been cut by 78% from its peak level.  And support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting has declined 25% since 2010.
