High Plains Public Radio Receives Grant from the C.J. and Syble Fowlston Charitable Trust
AMARILLO, TX – The C.J. and Syble Fowlston Charitable Trust has awarded High Plains Public Radio (HPPR) a $5,000 grant.
The Fowlston Charitable Trust’s grant will provide operating support to HPPR’s five stations serving people in the Texas Panhandle. KJJP-FM 105.7-Amarillo, KTXP-FM 91.5-Bushland, KTOT-FM 89.5-Spearman-Perryton, and KTDH-FM 89.3-Dalhart broadcast a mix of news, public affairs, music, and cultural programming and FM 94.9-Amarillo broadcasts news and public-affairs programming 24 hours a day (see schedule at www.hppr.org/schedule/week/hppr).
“We’re very thankful for the Fowlston Charitable Trust’s grant,” said HPPR Executive Director Will Murphy. “Their support allows HPPR to broadcast quality reporting and a wide variety of music to radio listeners across the Texas Panhandle. Such support makes possible everything from ‘Morning Edition’ to the ‘New York Philharmonic’ to ‘High Plains Morning’.”
The Fowlston Charitable Trust was founded in 1981 to support nonprofit organizations in the upper 20 counties of the Texas Panhandle.
HPPR has been providing public-radio service for 40 years, starting in 1980 with the launch of its first station in southwest Kansas. Over the years, HPPR has grown to provide service to nearly 300 communities in 80 counties across four states in the High Plains region through an interconnected network of 12 FM stations and six FM translators.
