December 18, 2013 — A new transmitter allows travelers to enjoy Wyoming Public Media on Interstate 25 all the way between Casper and Buffalo.
The new signal, 88.7 KUWK, improves listening in an area that historically has suffered weak coverage. A number of new areas between the 90.5 Buffalo and 90.9 Gillette signals along Interstate 90 also can receive a stronger signal.
“Funded by the University of Wyoming Outreach School, of which WPM is a part, this tower supports the university’s outreach mission to provide a strong public radio broadcast service throughout Wyoming,” says Christina Kuzmych, WPM’s general manager. “WPM currently covers close to 90 percent of the state’s terrain, and is the nation’s third-largest state network.”
