Telling great stories around the dial.
With 43 public radio stations and 32 translators in California, Florida and the Upper Midwest, American Public Media stays in touch with its broadcasting roots by making great radio—every hour of every day.
Beginning as a single classical music station at St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, in 1967, American Public Media (as Minnesota Public Radio) quickly expanded into a regional network offering news, classical music and now contemporary music and its roots in Minnesota and surrounding states. Minnesota Public Radio is the largest regional public radio network in the country, with 38 stations and three services.
American Public Media is also the parent organization for Southern California Public Radio, which operates three stations serving the greater Los Angeles area with award-winning news and cultural programming.
Most recently, in 2007, American Public Media launched Classical South Florida, which offers 24-hour-a-day, live-hosted classical music programming to southeastern Florida.
Minnesota Public Radio is one of the nation's premier public radio organizations. With its three services—news, classical music and The Current—serving a regional population of 5 million people, MPR has over 100,000 members and nearly 900,000 listeners each week.
Minnesota Public Radio's 998-seat Fitzgerald Theater and 100-seat UBS Forum provide venues for live broadcasts, discussion forums, political debates, cultural programming and more.
