CPB Hands Out $5 Million More for HD Radio Transition

Seventy-six more public stations will receive money to help them make the transition to digital, in the latest round of announced grants.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting announced grants of about $5 million. The stations include 25 serving rural and minority audiences, it said. The announcement was made by CPB President and CEO Robert T. Coonrod.
The purpose is to help stations purchase equipment needed to transmit a digital signal. In the first round of grants last summer, CPB granted $3 million to 42 noncomm stations.
CPB said it is "encouraging and supporting the early adoption of this promising new technology by providing matching funds to eligible stations."
Congress has appropriated $150 million for CPB over four years to help public radio and TV go digital. More announcements are pending; and stations can apply for another round of digital funding this summer.
