Texas Public Radio joined community partners in a National Public Lands Day event at Olmos Basin Park. Postponed from September due to rain, the event included creek and litter clean-up and mulching around newly-planted trees. Local Girl Scouts and the Friends of Olmos Basin Park made presentations to volunteers about the park's history and the importance of bats to the environment.

Texas Public Radio to Launch News and Talk Station at 89.9 FM

Texas Public Radio (TPR) is excited to announce it will soon be able to provide public radio service to the Texas Big Country. Broadcasting from Snyder, the new non-profit FM station will reach Sweetwater, Colorado City, Big Spring, and surrounding areas which are presently out of range of other public radio providers. This is the first major expansion for Texas Public Radio’s services since the debut of KTXI 90.1 FM in the Texas Hill Country in 1998.

After six years of leading the organization, Texas Public Radio's President and General Manager Dan Skinner issued his resignation to the TPR Board of Directors effective November 9, 2012.

During his tenure, Skinner was instrumental in leading TPR’s strategic direction.  Under his stewardship, TPR saw dramatic growth in audience and services, particularly the expansion of local news coverage and the development of an award-winning newsroom.
