Beginning in March 2020, we are pleased to announce a new service to The Public's Radio listeners! A 24/7/365 channel of news and analysis from the BBC World Service can be heard on our 89.3-HD2 signal via your HD Radio receiver. If you just can't get enough of news from an international perspective, this service is for you!


What's the broadcast schedule? A dynamic daily schedule of the BBC news is available on their website, and a printable PDF's are available at the American Public Media website here.


What's an HD RadioYou likely have one already; many late-model cars already do. See if your radio has a stylized "HD" logo like in the pic above. Just tune to 89.3FM, and after a few seconds it'll switch to digital and you can tune up one notch to the HD2.

Want to get one? I recommend using Crutchfield to find one that fits your car. Best Buy also sells a tabletop FM & HD Radio receiver, the NS-HDRAD2, usually for $40 or $50.
