Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., was pleased the Corporation for Pubic Broadcasting approved a grant to establish the Center for Native American Radio.
RW Online recently reported that CPB approved a $1.5 million grant to establish the Center for Native American Radio, a service bureau; it will provide technical, fundraising and programming support to 30 public stations that target Native American listeners.
"The Center will serve to promote Native American public radio stations and enable more Native listeners to be reached, particularly those who reside on reservations and are unable to receive other broadcast stations," said McCain. "Native American public radio is an invaluable tool that connects listeners with each other and their heritage. At a hearing before the Commerce Committee in July, I heard testimony from the general manager of KUYI(FM) - a Hopi radio station in Hotevilla, Ariz. - that the station's programming broadcast in Hopi has resulted in the 'resurgence' in the use of the Hopi language on the reservation."
