CPB Finalizes $9 Million in IBOC Grants

Publish date:

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting announced grants totaling more than $9 million to help an additional 133 local public radio stations buy equipment needed to transition to digital radio. Alaska, Kansas and Wyoming are the states with the most stations included in this round, which is the third of matching grants for IBOC gear; the total of awarded grants is now 285 public radio stations.
Some 170 TV stations also have received matching grants for their digital transition. Additional awards for public television to convert to digital will be announced this fall.
Final grants are contingent upon actual equipment costs and contract negotiations with stations.
These funds are part of $150 million that Congress provided to CPB over four years to assist public stations to convert from analog transmission to digital.
