SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA PUBLIC RADIO NOW WITH INCREASED TRANSMISSION TO PALM SPRINGS WITH THE LAUNCH OF 93.3 K227BX

SCPR’s latest expansion follows the recent launch of 89.5 FM in Ventura County

PASADENA – October 10, 2014 -- Southern California Public Radio (SCPR) is increasing its reach in Palm Springs with the addition of its newest transmitter, K227BX transmitting at 93.3 FM. This is a translator of the KVLA 90.3 FM signal that originates in Coachella. This is SCPR’s latest expansion following the launch of the 89.5 FM service in Ventura County in July, 2014. SCPR now has a broadcast presence in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties.

Through its KPCC flagship station, SCPR has won more awards for quality journalism in the last decade-and-a-half than all of the other radio stations in Los Angeles combined. KPCC is also the most listened-to NPR news station in Los Angeles, with an audience that is more than twice that of any other NPR news station in Southern California.

"We’re delighted to provide a stronger signal to Palm Springs," said Bill Davis, president of SCPR. "Over the years, we are proud to have provided increased news coverage in the Palm Springs and Coachella Valley region. SCPR is committed to producing continued high-quality, dependable public service journalism and community engagement, both on the radio at 93.3 FM and 90.3 FM, as well as on-line at kpcc.org."
