Join Us At The KettleHouse September 26

Sep 14, 2018

Missoula, it's been too long since we got together! How about joining us for a beer at the KettleHouse Northside, Wed. Sept. 26 from 5-8 p.m.?

We can catch up, and $1 from each beer sold will help support the Montana news, arts & hand-picked music that you rely on from MTPR.

Bring a friend and join us, we'll save you a seat!

You may have noticed that the sound of NPR’s Morning Edition and Montana Morning News has changed a bit over the last couple weeks. NPR decided to adjust the order of things during Morning Edition. That means you’ll now hear newscasts at the top and bottom of each hour, followed by Montana News.

That’s where the other change has happened. Your morning news is now being delivered by Beau Baker. Don't worry, you'll still hear from Edward O'Brien, but now he has a slightly later wake-up call. We made the change to give him time to do more reporting.

You can tune in to MTPR on your radio any time.

MTPR's live stream will be offline 8/1 and 8/2 from midnight to 4 a.m. due to network maintenance on the UM campus. We apologize for the inconvenience. You can tune in to MTPR on your radio any time.

Thank You Butte!

Jun 28, 2018

We want to say a huge thanks to everyone who came out to the Covellite Theatre on Wednesday to help us launch and celebrate Richest Hill!

You told us about your Butte, what you're curious and concerned about, and what stories you think deserve more attention. Your suggestions and ideas will help shape the reporting process for Richest Hill, and help us stay rooted to what matters to Butte.

Montana Public Radio and our partners at MontanaPBS and Yellowstone Public Radio brought home awards from the Montana Broadcasters Association this weekend.

Do you live in Butte? Do you care what happens to this extraordinary place?

Grab a [free] beer with Montana Public Radio and chat with the team behind Richest Hill, a new project all about the big changes and tough questions in Butte, America. Your input can help guide the new podcast.

Please join us on Wednesday, June 27, at the Covellite Theater Lounge (215 W. Broadway Street) from 7-9 p.m.

On April 23 around 11 a.m., 91.5 MHz in Missoula went off the air for about 75 minutes. During that time, we were performing software and firmware upgrades to the transmitter in order to ensure we were running the most stable and current version of the software which provides monitoring and control of the transmitter’s performance.  

As the snow melts to grant us access, we will repeat this procedure for 89.5 MHz in Polson, 90.1 MHz in Kalispell and 90.5 MHz in Libby. Conditions at our transmitter sites can change quickly, but we'll do our best to provide as much advanced notice as possible before any outages.

Don't forget you can tune in any time right here at mtpr.org.
