Plan: Create Iowa Public Radio System

A report endorsed by Iowa’s three public radio licensees recommends that the state’s three major stations combine into a statewide system. “The study found that lack of cooperation and overlapping broadcast areas cause the university stations to lag behind pubradio’s national performance in audience and fundraising. ‘Each has probably reached its full potential as a totally independent university station. Public radio in Iowa has not reached its full potential, however’.”
