In 2008, Mississippi Public Broadcasting decided to expand the state’s classic public radio format with programs that would be more specific to Mississippians. Shows were developed that used local volunteers to discuss issues that directly impacted the state: personal finance, healthcare, and household issues. There are now over a dozen weekly programs that discuss everything from local music to cuisine, all tailored to the topics that affect our community every day.
Today, Mississippians not only get the fact-based journalism and classic selection of music they expect from around the nation, but also shows that are relevant to life in Mississippi.
The 24-hour Radio Reading service features on-the-air readings of newspapers, books and magazines for persons who are unable to read the printed word. Learn more.
