As you may recall, NORTH TEXAS PUBLIC BROADCASTING, INC., which owns News/Information KERA/DALLAS, officially acquired the KXT (91.7)/DENTON, TX signal a while back and according to PEGASUS NEWS, they will be launching a new public radio version of Triple A in a few weeks.
The news source says among the programs under consideration for the new station include WORLD CAFÉ (distributed by NPR), ECHOES (from PUBLIC RADIO INTERNATIONAL), UNDERCURRENTS (from NATIVE VOICE ONE) and AMERICAN ROUTES (from AMERICAN PUBLIC MEDIA), while NPR NEWS headlines will be broadcast at the top of the hour.
Local programs will include interviews, studio performances, and arts-related news and commentary with a focus on local music. Further, the music programs currently featured on KERA will move over to 91.7, including Celtic music program, THE THISTLE AND SHAMROCK and locally produced THE PAUL SLAVENS SHOW.
