Lakeshore Public Radio Expands Coverage Area

Upgrades to Lakeshore Public Radio’s transmission system are nearly complete!

This endeavor will strengthen our over-the-air broadcast signal and result in a 75% increase in the station’s population coverage area (read the full press release here). These upgrades will not only extend the range of our signal across Northwest Indiana, but also allow us to broadcast with far fewer shadows and dead spots. This means our high-quality, informative programming will be available to more Region residents than ever before in the history of the station (13 years and counting!).

Lakeshore Public Radio Expansion Reach

Community Impact

As a nonprofit, public radio station our broadcast is available to all residents across Northwest Indiana regardless of their social or economic status. We proudly serve our diverse, loyal listeners with programming that includes news and public affairs, arts, life, music and more from NPR as well as local and statewide partners.

At a time when access to trusted information has never been more important, this signal expansion was crucial to enriching our community by creating a more informed and engaged citizenry.

You Power Public Radio

The grassroots nature of our fundraising is more important than ever before as nearly half of our annual funding comes directly from local community support here in Northwest Indiana. That includes support from listeners like you as well as some amazing organizations who share our commitment to the community.
