MISSOULA – The team behind the Montana Public Radio podcast “SubSurface: Resisting Montana’s Underwater Invaders” has won a prestigious 2018 Kavli Science Journalism Award.

The science journalism awards, administered by the American Association for the Advancement of Science since 1945, honor distinguished reporting for a general audience. Endowed by the Kavli Foundation, the awards are open to journalists worldwide, and entries came from 54 countries this year. Independent panels of science journalists select the winners.

Microsoft announced a new agreement this week to deliver broadband internet service to over 73,000 people in rural Montana and Washington who currently have slow, or no internet whatsoever.

The FCC says roughly 40 percent of rural Montanans lack access to a broadband internet connection.

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.
