NWPR Moving on the Radio Dial in Goldendale, The Dalles, Hood River

PULLMAN, Wash. — Radio listeners in Goldendale, The Dalles, Ore., and Hood River, Ore., will have to change their radio dial settings to find Northwest Public Radio, a service of Washington State University, from 90.1 FM to 90.5 FM on or around Wednesday, Sept. 19.

The Federal Communications Commission approved a frequency change for the NPR translator that serves these cities and surrounding areas. NWPR requested the change because of a new station in Hood River that also will broadcast at 90.1 FM.
