Licensed in 1951, Colorado College-owned 91.5 KRCC was the first noncommercial FM station in Colorado. In 1984, the station became Colorado’s third National Public Radio member station. It has gradually expanded its reach by building multiple translators and transmitters to improve reception in its mountainous service area.
KRCC provides nationally distributed public radio news/talk programming as well as local coverage of Southern Colorado and northern New Mexico during daytime hours. After 7 p.m., the station features locally produced music programming. Interestingly, the genteel field of public radio is fiercely competitive, especially since Colorado Public Radio announced plans earlier this year to enter the local market. The station also announced plans on June 12 to locate a new transmitter in Woodland Park.
“We are very proud of our growing service to the community,” said KRCC General Manager Tammy Terwelp. “We are so excited with our new improved signal in the Woodland Park area, our two upcoming hires to expand our newsroom with more local and regional reporting, our launch of a specialized music-on-demand player and our move to a professional broadcast facility with community spaces on Tejon Street. We have been a part of the Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado communities since 1951 and our dedication and commitment has never been stronger. Thank you to everyone who voted for us.”
