Montana Public Radio is a network of public radio stations serving the U.S. state of Montana, primarily the western part of the state. The network is currently owned by the University of Montana, and its studios are located on the university campus in Missoula, with a satellite facility in Great Falls. The network is affiliated with National Public Radio.

History

Montana Public Radio began in 1965 when the network's flagship station, KUFM in Missoula, signed on as a 10-watt student station. In 1974, it became a charter member of NPR.

Starting in the late 1970s, it began building translators across western Montana. Its first full-power satellite, in Great Falls, signed on in 1984. In 1999, a signal extension project funded mostly by a federal grant made it possible to sign on new stations in Kalispell and Hamilton and upgrade translators in Butte and Helena to full-power stations.

Satellites and repeaters

Montana Public Radio consists of six full-power stations:
